PTA Reflections Contest - ENDING SOON!

Annual National PTA Reflections Contest: Due to the uncertain nature of this school year and in the interest of keeping everyone safe, we have decided that for Livonia Public Schools, we will be hosting an all-virtual Reflections art contest this year. All submissions will be digital. The deadline for entries is November 13. Livonia Virtual students enter at their home school. The theme this year is “I Matter Because.” Plans for the awards ceremony are on hold until we know what will be allowed.


WHAT IS REFLECTIONS? The PTA believes all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual arts Reflections Program. The program offers students in preschool through grade 12 the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. It celebrates the many skills of our students and encourages them to pursue artistic expression in a number of different ways including Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Musical Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. More information can be found at https://livoniaptsacouncil.org/work/reflections-arts-awards-competition/


Please see the attached flyer for the rules of the contest. For a short video about Reflections, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=424509768517318
