In This Section

Each year, students in preschool through grade 12 are invited to create and submit works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. 


Virtual Exhibits: Within Reach

During the 2017-2018 school year, tens of thousands of students across the country and in U.S. schools overseas contributed their original works to be considered for PTA’s highest honor in the arts. A panel of arts and education experts juried national level submissions, selecting works to be exhibited.

Traveling Exhibitions 

Within Reach began its tour January 2019 in Washington, DC. Watch a livestream of the event.

The tour will conclude in Columbus, OH at the 2019 National PTA Convention and Expo, June 20-23. Only original visual art works will be returned to students in August 2019.
