Reflections Student Entry Portal 

The National PTA Reflections Student Entry Portal is open for the 2023-2024 I am Hopeful Because... program later in the summer at this link.

The Reflections Student Entry Portal is a tool designed for State PTA’s to submit student entries to the national level. You should only submit entries in the Portal at the request of your State Reflections Chair. National PTA will only accept entries for review on the national level that have been advanced by the State Reflections Chair. 

If you have questions, please connect with your State PTA.  



Because Reflections is largely managed on the state level, you should first share questions with your State PTA Reflections Program or your State PTA to find state-specific Reflections information and support.

However, National PTA is here to support you. You can also email
