Reflections Theme for 2021-2022

This year’s theme is “I Will Change the World By…”

The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students. The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme while increasing community awareness of the importance of the arts in education.

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create and submit original works of art in response to a student-selected theme, in the areas of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.
