Reflections

Established in 1969, PTA REFLECTIONS is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program encouraging artistic creativity in dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on the 2016-2017 theme:WHAT IS YOUR STORY?


Last year, fourteen Gwin Oaks winners had their projects place at County and went on to State competition. Former fifth graders, Kiley Sena and Talaya Kaj Thomas, represented Georgia at the National level in Film/Video Production and Music Composition, respectively.

To showcase your child’s talent, paste these links in your browser or email the Reflections Team for rules and forms. Projects and entry forms are due by Wednesday, October 5th.
