All About the Arts
The 2020-2021 Reflections Art Program has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And Ohio PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.
Reflections encourages students of all ages to:
Unleash creative talents and be inspired
Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
Experience the fun and joy of making art
Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.
The Reflections categories include:
The grade divisions include:
Primary (PreK – Grade 2)
Intermediate (Grades 3 – 5)
Middle School (Grades 6-8)
High School (Grades 9 – 12)
All Reflection entries are submitted first to local PTAs/PTSAs where they are recognized and judged in their grade level divisions. The Special Artist division celebrates all student artists with special needs. PTAs then choose the winning entries to be judged by local PTA units, which may then be sent on to districts for judging. District winners submitted to Ohio PTA are then judged at the state level and are considered for awards. 1st place entries are then sent on to National PTA to represent Ohio PTA in the final National PTA judging round.
