2018 PTA Reflections Contest Theme: HEROES AROUND ME

There are six categories for entry:

  • Dance Choreography

  • Photography
  • Visual Arts


Only new pieces of artwork inspired by the current year’s theme may be submitted.

All participants must follow the art category rules or, if applicable, Special Artist Division rules. You can download all the rules here.

Entries should recognize students’ unique creativity. Adults are welcome to encourage students, but are asked not to assist in any way with interpretation of the theme or artistic expression.

Multiple entries are welcome. A student entry form must accompany every entry. You can find the student entry form under the National PTA Student Packet link here.

Every entered student is recognized for their accomplishments with a ceremony here at Jackson Davis. Category winners will then move on with an opportunity to compete at the county, state and national levels.

All entries are due to your student’s teacher by Friday, October 19.
