Do you enjoy art, music and dance or have an interest in telling stories, producing films and taking photos? Then join us in participating in the Eckstein PTA’s Reflections art competition, and create original works of art inspired by the theme I Will Change the World By…
Eckstein’s annual competition is part of the National PTA program that encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Eckstein students are encouraged to submit their completed works of art in one, or all, of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.
Student entry rules can be found here in English and Spanish. The contest will be virtual and all submissions must be made online.
A special artist division is an option for students with a disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Generally, rules and guidelines within the special artists division are intended to ensure accessibility to the National PTA Reflections® program and are modeled after the guidelines outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Complete details are included in the 2021-22 special artist rules.
Eckstein’s deadline is Nov. 1. Entries are judged on creative ability and interpretation of the theme. 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. Top national-level winners receive prizes and scholarships and their works are showcased and exhibited.
For more information, contact parent volunteer Rachael Levy.
Each year, National PTA seeks a theme for the Reflections program year to be held two years from now. This year students are asked to submit a theme for the 2023-2024 program year. The due date for submitting a theme search entry is Nov. 1.
The student who submits the winning entry will receive $100 and his or her theme will be presented at the annual National PTA Convention in June 2022. Repeat themes will not be considered. Click here for a list of past themes.
Submit your entry using the new online Theme Search form.

All Board meetings are open to the Eckstein Community (whether or not you're a PTSA member), and will be virtual until we are allowed to meet in person in the school building. This is a great way to learn about the community and hear directly from school leaders about what's going on. Engage with us, or just keep your camera off and quietly take it all in. Join us however you can!
