Reflections Toolkit

Use this 2016-2017 Reflections Toolkit: What Is Your Story? to walk through a step-by-step process, gather tools and resources and learn best practices for hosting your program.

Step 1. Register Your PTA's Program

Step 2. Plan Your Program 

  • Customize your PTA Leader Checklist to organize tasks and schedule deadlines.
  • Recruit a committee with this Flier and Volunteer Sign-Up Sheet.
  • Recruit volunteer judges with experience in the arts.
  • To inspire participation, plan activities during National Arts in Education Week (Sept. 11-17, 2016) and National Arts and Humanities Month (October).

Step 3. Promote your 'Call for Entries'

Step 4. Organize Artwork for Judging

  • Collect submissions and organize by Arts Category and Grade Division. Qualify submissions according to program rules and address student ineligibility, as needed.   
  • Prepare submissions for Judges' review and provide Judging Guidelines and a Score Card to each judge. Judges will review artwork and judging information provided on the student's entry form.
  • Collect judges scores and rank entries. Assign awards by grade division and arts category. Award levels may include: Award of Excellence; Award of Merit; Honorable Mention; Participant.

Step 5. Celebrate and Recognize Your Participants

Step 6. Wrap Up
