All students who received an Award of Excellence had their projects turned into the Henrico County Council of PTA’s to be judged along with winners from around Henrico County. County winners will be announced in February and all families are invited to attend the ceremony, so we will be posting more information about the ceremony as it becomes available. Thank you again to the Nuckols Farm Elementary School PTA for supporting such a worthy art project. The next theme will also be announced in February so stay tuned for more information.
In 1969, Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson developed the first Reflections program to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Since that time, millions of students have benefited from the program.
The program is designed to enhance quality arts education for students in Pre-K through grade 12. As participants in the program, students are encouraged to create works in various art categories.
Students submit artwork to Local PTAs. Works are judged by Local PTAs and the winning entries advance to the Council, District, and/or State PTA round, depending on the State structure. Top entries from each State PTA Reflections contest advance to National PTA for the final round of judging.
Each Spring, PTA districts present state winners with Certificates and Ribbons for Excellence in each grade division and category as well as Awards of Merit for in each grade division and category. There are also Outstanding Interpretation winners in each grade division and category that are recognized at the Virginia PTA’s Annual Conference with certificates and medals.
Each June, National PTA awards 6 outstanding Interpretations awards, 3 Awards of Excellence for each category in each division and 5 Awards of Merit for each category in each division.
