Reflections: The PTA Contest That Celebrates The Arts

The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme, while increasing community awareness on the importance of the arts in education.

The Reflections Program is one of the PTA’s longest standing signature programs, not just at La Mariposa, but nationally.  Thousands of students across the country compete at their own schools in six different categories:  Photography, Visual Arts, Dance Choreography, Film, Music Composition, and Literature.  Students compete according to their grade in divisions. Our PTA puts on a Showcase in late October to recognize all the participants.  Finalists from each division move on to the Council (City) competition.  Then the  field narrows from Council to District (County), then to State, and finally to National.  Last year, one of our very own students represented La Mariposa and won at the state level!

This Year’s Theme is the “The Magic of a Moment”.  Entries are due Friday, October 12.  To get all the program details, rules, and entry forms please visit our Reflections Webpage.

Check out some of the amazing entries from the last years visual arts category, theme “Diversity Means”:
