PTA Reflections Art Contest Asks Students to Create ‘I Matter Because…’

The 2020-2021 Reflections Arts Contest has begun. This year’s theme is “I Matter Because…” and is open to artists, dancers, writers, photographers, filmmakers and musicians! Let your creativity shine. To participate, students submit an original piece of their own independent work inspired by the theme, in any of the following six areas: Dance, Film, Literature, Photography, Music Composition and Visual Arts. Students are welcome to submit to more than one category.
Please note, that for the Film category, the students must do all of the actual camera filming themselves. So, if they want to be in their own film, they must use a tripod or station the camera in one spot while they are on camera.
Reflections is an annual program sponsored by the National PTA to provide opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.
Each year, more than 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy and increase confidence.

Please encourage your student to submit an entry. Click on the link for the Student Entry Form to complete and upload all documents to
Submissions are due October 30 via the online link. For questions, contact Culver City Council PTA Reflections Chair Patricia Garcia at [email protected].
