Reflections 2023-2024.png


National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts, boosting student confidence and success in the arts and life.

Each year, over 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 thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them succeed in school and life. The theme this year “I am Hopeful Because…”. Students are encouraged to create original works on this theme highlighting one of six areas: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.

For the 2023-2024 year, there were 536 art entries submitted at the school sites throughout Glendale Unified School District, and 114 were judged at the Council PTA level. Thirty outstanding interpretation winners, which are featured below, were then judged at First District PTA. From these 30, 3 moved on to the State competition.
