South Pasadena High School PTSA Presents Reflections Art Program

All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

• Dance Choreography
• Literature
• Photography
• Film Production
• Music Composition
• Visual Arts

This year’s theme is: “I Matter Because…”

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions. 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 Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence, or Awards of Merit.

Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.

Entries must be sent to by October 15, 2020. Please click here to access the student entry packet for submission requirements.

For more information, go to the National PTA website at or go to and watch the Call for Entries video.
