Reflections 2018-2019

Heroes Around Me

“Heroes Around Me”


That’s the theme for the 2018-2019 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections encourage students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

All Mar Vista Elementary students from TK to Grade 5 are invited to enter their creative works of art inspired by this year's theme "Heroes Around Me." Students may enter original artwork in the following categories:

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

Works of arts will be separated into two divisions: Primary for grades TK-2 and Intermediate for grade 3-5. All art work must be completed by one participant and be a new, original entry created for the contest. Entries are reviewed at local, regional, state and national levels.

All entries are due Friday, November 9, 2018 and must be submitted with an official entry form to the Reflections PTA box in the main office. Forms can be printed out or you may find one in the Reflections mailbox in the main office. Please visit the official PTA Reflections website to view official rules at here.
