Reflections Art Recognition Program

Give students confidence in their abilities to explore ideas and learn through the arts!
Each year hundreds of thousands of students in preschool through grade 12 create and submit original works in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students may participate in the national awards program through their school's PTA.

The 2018-2019 theme "Heroes Around Me" will spark imagination and creativity in school and at home. Encourage your school to imagine, create and celebrate with Reflections during National Arts & Humanities Month this October.

How to Get Involved

To get involved, students must fill out the entry form and consent form, and submit an original piece, inspired by the annual theme, for the Reflections Program.  All entries must be submitted in accordance to the rules and turned in on time to be considered.  The art areas for this year are:

·         Dance Choreography (click to see rules)

·         Literature (click to see rules)

·         Music Composition (click to see rules)

Please note that the consent form is required for Dance Choreography, Film Production, and Music Composition entries only. It is best to use USB sticks for recordings.  

Special Artist Division

The Special Artist Division is a non-graded division limited to students with physical, cognitive or mental health challenges. These students will follow all general and arts category rules, but may submit an entry in the grade division most closely aligned to their cognitive or functional abilities.
