Reflections is a national PTA program that encourages millions of students to express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. The Texas Reflections program has the most participation of any National PTA program with entries totaling over 75,000 across the state. Students may create and submit works of art in 6 categories.

Eligible students may enter any or all six categories, and multiple entries within each category are permitted (and encouraged!). Each entry must be the original work of the entering student and created specifically for the Reflections program based on the 2020-2021 theme: I Matter Because.
