For over 50 years, the National PTA REFLECTIONS program has boosted student confidence and success through recognition of their own works. Each year over 300,000 students create original works of art inspired by an annual theme.

With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.
