2014-2015 PTA Reflections Contest “The world would be a better place if…”

Designed to enhance rather than replace a quality arts education, the PTA® Reflections Program℠ provides opportunities for students to express themselves and to receive positive recognition for their artistic efforts. PTA believes all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual arts Reflections Program. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students can participate by entering a unique piece in the categories of dance choreography, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, print making, and collage).

The theme for this year is “The world would be a better place if…” All entries should reflect the theme. All finalists will showcase their work, and every participant will be recognized by the PPCES FSU PTA at the final PTA event of the year. In addition, all participants will have a Pizza Party for their participation. For information and rules go to PTA.org/Reflections. This year’s contest will not be entered into the Broward County or National PTA contest. All entries should be submitted by Friday, March 13, 2015. Late entries will not be accepted. Contact Dawn McCormick at 786-382-6909 or [email protected] for more information.
