REFLECTIONS: IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ARTS

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 encourages 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.

PARTICIPATION IS EASY, EXCITING AND EMPOWERING

All students at Chaboya Middle School are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

Dance Choreography

Literature

Photography

Film Production

Music Composition

Visual Arts

Artworks are submitted to Chaboya Middle School PTSA , where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs.

Chaboya PTSA then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit.

Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.

State-level Outstanding Interpretation honorees receive:

Onstage recognition at the California State PTA Annual Convention

The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention Reflections Gallery

Prizes including an Outstanding Interpretation plaque, award and certificate

State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:

The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention Reflections Gallery

Prizes including an Award of Excellence medallion, award and certificate

State-level Award of Merit honorees receive:

The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention Reflections Gallery

Prizes including an Award of Merit medallion and certificate

National-level Outstanding Interpretation honorees are recognized at the National PTA Convention, plus their artwork, along with any National Award of Excellence and Merit winners, are featured in Reflections' popular traveling national exhibit.
