National PTA’s Reflections program helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

Each year, over 300,000 students create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. The theme for the 2019-2020 program year is Look Within. Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts. There is a Special Artists Division, too!

Winners from Park Hill will move on to MO PTA’s program. Winners at state continue on to the national level. National Reflections winners are announced in May and will be celebrated at National PTA's Convention in Louisville, KY in June. National PTA then collects and curates the traveling exhibit for the next year.

This is a cool way for you to express yourself, not to mention this will look GREAT on your high school resume!
