PTA Reflections welcomes students of all grades and abilities to explore their inner artist in one or all six arts disciplines.
Students reflect on the annual student-selected theme in school or at home and are recognized for their participation and achievement in the arts with the opportunity for state and national awards and recognition.
The love of art and celebration of students can bring people together – families, teachers, and friends in the community.
New academic standards require more critical thinking and problem-solving, which translates into more creativity and deeper reflection.
That’s why Reflections isn’t just for art classes.

The search is on for a future Reflections theme! National PTA’s Reflections art program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. With this theme, students will create works of art in six categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.
Help us pick the theme that will spark fun and creativity for a future National PTA Reflections program! The student who submits the final winning entry for National PTA will receive a $100 prize. We’re looking for the most original theme ideas. This means past themes and duplicate submissions will not be considered. The past list of themes can be found at the bottom of the submission form page linked below.
To participate, students go to https://form.jotform.com/221745830340147 to submit their entry directly with Louisiana PTA. They should check out the past winning themes at the bottom of the entry portal to make sure they do not duplicate past themes.
