National PTA Reflections welcomes all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

The theme for the 2016-2017 school year is What Is Your Story? This theme was selected through the Reflections Theme Search Contest. Join the search for a future theme by entering the annual Theme Search Contest.
