Welcome Local PTA Reflections Leaders

Thank you for participating in the 2021–2022 National PTA Reflections program, with the student-selected theme I Will Change the World By...

Please share your participation with National PTA by completing this registration form. Registering for Reflections helps National PTA show the wide reach of our beloved program and the importance of the arts! Upon registering, Local, District, Region and Council PTAs should coordinate with their State PTAs to gain information about how to implement the program. Individual participants should begin by connecting with their Local PTA.

Please note: Due to the large number of registrants, you will not receive a confirmation email.

2021–2022 Local Leader Resources

As Reflections is largely managed on the state level, you should coordinate with your State PTA to find state-specific guidelines, deadlines, and resources. In addition, make sure to review the Local Leader's Guide (en español Coming Soon) which outlines the steps needed to host a program at your school. You will also find helpful tools to recruit and train volunteers as well as to plan family celebrations.

In addition to the those provided by your State PTA, use the following resources to help you manage your Reflections program:


Check out these additional resources to take your Reflections program to the next level:

  • Local Leader E-learning Course provides an overview of what steps you can take to successfully manage your Reflections program. 

  • As some school communities may still be learning remotely, National PTA supports and encourages PTAs to run their Reflections programs virtually if they so choose. For tips, refer to this Virtual Reflections resource, sourced from PTA leaders across the country. Please note: National PTA will accept virtual entries and typed signatures on the Student Entry Forms from State PTAs.

  • Check out these Reflections At-Home Activities for the whole family. Share these with families in your school community to help inspire them to create!

  • Take our diversity in the arts pledge to highlight your PTA's commitment to furthering diversity in the arts. You can even customize this version to make the pledge specific to your community and community needs.
