Call for Submissions! Reflections Art Contest


School has started, summer has ended, and October is here. As always, this time of year brings the National PTA’s Reflections program, an arts contest in which El Segundo public schools participate annually.

The Reflections program, headed in El Segundo by parent of two Nina Baumler, invites students in pre-K through grade 12 to create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. The theme for the 2020-2021 program year is “I matter because… .”


Entry categories are:

  • Dance choreography

  • Film production

  • Literature

  • Music composition

  • Photography

  • Visual arts

This year, students will submit their entries digitally using an online entry form. They are invited to submit entries in one or more categories. The deadline is October 24, 2020.

Student winners from the local level have the opportunity to move up through their district, region, council, and state PTA programs to the national level. National Reflections winners are typically announced in May and celebrated annually at National PTA’s Convention & Expo in June.
