Reflections

Do you enjoy art, music and dance or have an interest in writing, producing films and taking photos? Then join us and have fun unleashing your inner artist with PTA Reflections! The 2020 theme, “I Matter Because,” calls for your own unique interpretation through the arts. Louise Archer Students have won awards at the State and National Level! Let’s do that again this year! See a video explaining the program.

Guidelines for each category are linked below. The student submission form will be available soon. For inspiration, visit the Reflections virtual art gallery and learn more about prizes and scholarships.

Submission Form (English)
Submission Form (Spanish)

  • Students’ submissions are reviewed by independent third-party judges based on artistic skill as well how the theme is interpreted. The entries are judged against peers’ work (grades K-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th grade), and those with the highest scores from our school competition progress to an area competition and possibly to regional, state, and the national contest.
  • Entries are due on Wednesday, October 14th.
  • Look for more guidance in August once we know plans for the school year.

Would you like to help National PTA pick out a future Reflections theme? All Reflections themes are submitted by students! The winning student receives $100 from National PTA. Anyone that submits a theme for consideration will receive special recognition at our Reflections Awards Reception. Submit the form with your idea to the Library by October 21, 2020.
