The National PTA Reflections program encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Through the program, LISD PTA, State and National PTAs across the country urge students in preschool through grade 12 to create and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice (dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts) reflecting on a theme —

“Look Within.”

There also is a special artist division option for students with disabilities to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate in the program. Students are recognized each year for their artistic ingenuity to bring the theme to life in a way that is personal and meaningful.

Entry Rules and Forms:
The student or at least one person from their primary household must be a current member of the FMHS PTSA.

Students should download the Program Rules to ensure their art meets the requirements for each art category. Each entry must be accompanied by a completed Student Entry form. Visit https://www.txpta.org/reflections-participation

There is no limit to the number of entries for all categories.

Submissions Deadline: Oct. 25.
