Reflections Description

Committee Name: Reflections

Description: Reflections is an arts recognition and achievement program established in 1969 by the National PTA. This program provides an opportunity for students to use their creative talents and to express themselves through their own work in one or more of 6 different artistic categories. By encouraging students to be creative, we help them develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Although the program follows a “contest” format, the goal is participation, not winning. All participants in the program will be recognized for their efforts and receive participation ribbons and prizes.
