Reflections

It's time once again for the PTA Reflections Art Contest! 

This year's theme is “I Matter Because.”

reflections

We encourage all Meadows Mustang artists to start reflecting upon the theme and create original works of art this fall. In this contest, demonstrating the spirit of the theme is highly valued.

The Reflections contest deadline will be October 26, 2020.

Since 1969, the PTA Reflections program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to explore their artistic talents by creating works of art for fun and recognition.

All submissions are digital this year. The student entry form can be located here. Entry rules can be located within the student entry form.

We welcome works of art in six categories:

  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Literature
  • Musical Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts

Local winners in each category go on to compete at the district/region and state levels.

**Students with disabilities may choose to participate in the Special Artist division, which has modified rules to accommodate special needs. Please see Special Artist rules for more details.**
