Skyview PTSA is excited to announce the

2018 - 2019 National PTA Reflections Art Contest! 


What is Reflections?

  • The Reflections Program is an annual National PTA and WSPTA 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.
  • Reflections is so much more than "just an art contest."  
    • It helps kids take risks
    • Kids can be inspired
    • It helps students think creatively 
    • They can receive positive recognition
    • Students will be celebrated for their works of art
    • It also allows our community to celebrate creativity in our students!
  • The 2017-2018 theme is "HEROES AROUND ME".
  • Students can start working on their individual projects now.
  • More details coming when school starts.
  • All entries are due in November 2018. Exact date TBA.
