National PTA Art Competition
PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on the 2020-2021 theme: I Matter Because. Every year, several Park Western Place students are honored by the Tenth District PTA! Last year, one of our students won the district round and competed in the state competition to win the Award of Merit in music composition. Previously, one PWP student even won the National Special Artist’s Award of Excellence in Literature! Let’s continue to show the nation how amazing PWP students really are!
Project Deadline November 9
All students are invited to participate and submit original artwork in six categories:
Students enter in the appropriate division for their grade:
How it works:
Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by grade divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round. Visit CAPTA Reflections for more information.
How to participate:
- Read the Official Rules in the Student Packet and decide which categories you are interested in. (Las reglas en espanol)
