Urgently Seeking Volunteer Reflections Chair or Co-Chairs

Reflections is a national PTA program encouraging students to submit original works of art in six categories.  The Reflections Chair or Co-Chairs collect, sort, display, and deliver entries for judging in Oct/Nov.

In the unfortunate event a Reflections Chair or Co-Chairs is not identified, Reflections will be cancelled for 2021-22.


2021-22 Theme Announced

The National PTA Reflections art contest is now open to all Dickinson/Explorer students.  Students create and submit original works of art in one or all of the available categories, but just one entry per category:  dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.  The 2021-22 Reflections theme is "I WILL CHANGE THE WORLD BY..."

Let the theme inspire you, and let creativity flow!  Can't wait to see what Dickinson/Explorer students create!  Submission deadline:  Oct/Nov
