Skyview PTSA is excited to announce the

2020-2021 National PTA Reflections Art Contest! 


** Updated submission information below! **

What is Reflections?

The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works to reflect this year's theme, "I Matter Because...".

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 2020-2021 theme is "I Matter Because...".
