From Our President

PTA is the largest child advocacy group in the nation.  Please join us as we strive to make every child's potential a reality. How much do you know about PTA?  Did you know that Alabama PTA was established in 1911?  PTA is more than a fundraising organization.  Alabama PTA advocates for all children in our state.

Tips for Promoting Reflections

JUDGE REVIEWER'S PACKET

Background

Started in 1969 by the Colorado PTA President Mary Lou Anderson, Reflections has encouraged millions of students to express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Students in preschool through grade 12 may create and submit works of art in six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and visual arts. Any PTA in good standing is eligible to sponsor Reflections on their campus.

 

Participate

The Reflections program recognizes students at the Local, Council/Region, State and National PTA levels. At each level, all entries are judged on interpretation of the theme, creativity and artistic merit.  Eligible students must attend a school with a PTA in good standing with Alabama PTA.

 

Students may enter  any or all of the six art categories. Multiple entries within a single arts category is permitted.  Each entry must be the original work of one student and created specifically for the Reflections program based on the national theme. Each entry must also conform to the guidelines developed by the National PTA.
