PTA Art Reflections Program
I Matter Because...

All CMHS & CMMS students are invited to participate in this year's National PTA Reflections program. It's a fun and creative way to interpret this year's theme, "I Matter Because..." through Art. AND, IT LOOKS GREAT ON COLLEGE APPLICATIONS! Create an original work (or multiple works) inspired by the theme and join the contest! 

It's easy to submit Virtually from the comfort of your home.

The 2020-21 Reflections Art Program has been bringing the arts to life for more than

10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront

of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education. 

Entry Deadline is Monday, October 12, 2020 via online submission.

Student Entry Form

Be sure to click SUBMIT Button on the last page (Section 10). Students will receive a confirmation email.

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired

  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork

  • Experience the fun and joy of making art

  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme

  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

There are 7 areas to choose from:

  • Dance Choreography

  • Literature

  • Photography

  • Film Production

  • Music Composition

  • Visual Arts

  • Special Artists

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.
