The 2020-2021 National PTA Reflections theme is:  


“I Matter Because...”


                       Sowers Reflections Submission due Date October 9, 2020 


Students may submit an entry in any of the six arts areas listed below. Only original works of art are accepted. Depending on local PTA guidelines, students may enter more than one work of art.

The six arts areas are as follows:

  • Literature

  • Musical composition

  • Photography

  • Visual arts 2D & 3D

  • Dance Choreography

  • Film/Video Production


Participation in the Reflections Program is organized by school grade. Student works are critiqued against others in the same grade division. This allows recognition and judging of artworks by appropriate developmental age and skill levels. The Middle School grade divisions are as follows:

  • Middle/Junior Grades 6-8 or ages 11-13

  • Special Artist: All Grades


Participation in the Reflections Program is a great way for students to explore and learn about various art forms. Creating art is a valuable learning process that challenges students to use their critical thinking skills as well as their creative talents to create art that supports a specific theme.
