What is Reflections?
The Reflections Program is a National PTA cultural arts competition. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works based on this year's theme:     SHOW YOUR VOICE!

The National PTA Reflections Program encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts in an educational way. Through the program, Wellington PTA and PTAs across the country urge students to reflect on the theme and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice.
