Reflections is an annual arts competition (for grades K-12) spearheaded by the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and serves as their cornerstone arts program. Reflections helps highlight the importance of the arts as part of a well-rounded education. When children express themselves through words, pictures, music, dance, and other art forms, they grow intellectually and socially. They learn to analyze their thoughts, feelings, and ideas; learn to look at things, people, and experiences in a fresh and exciting way; and become more interested in the ideas and works of others.
