The Reflections Program is a national and state PTA cultural arts competition providing students (Pre-K to 12th grade) an opportunity to express themselves through their own original works. Reflections engages nearly 300,000 students and their families in arts education each year.

SUPPLIES

It's important to use supplies that are accepted by the competition. Review your packets for specific details. Here are a few recommendations:

  • Ben Franklin Crafts (Redmond) has a Reflections Station for mounting materials and art sleeves. 
  • Art and office supply stores (Staples, Fred Meyer) provide a variety of supplies to help mount and protect your work with plastic sleeves, manila envelopes and celo-wrap. 


JUDGING PROCESS

Student works will be critiqued by local art professionals against others in the same grade division:
  • Primary: Preschool - Grade 2
  • Intermediate: Grades 3 - 5
Participants will receive a certificate and ribbon. Winners may advance to the PTA council, state and national competitions. Top winners at the national level receive award packages, some of which include cash prizes!
