The Tyler Council PTA recently announced the names of Tyler ISD students whose submissions in the PTA Reflections Art Contest have advanced to the state level of competition.
The National PTA Reflections program encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts in an educational way. Through the program, National PTA, Tyler Council PTA and PTAs across the country, urge students in preschool through grade 12 to create and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice — dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts — reflecting on a specific theme. There is also a special artist division option for students with disabilities to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate in the program. Students are recognized each year for their artistic ingenuity to bring the theme to life in a way that is personal and meaningful.
Founded in 1969, the National PTA Reflections program engages nearly 300,000 students and their families in arts education activities each year — encouraging students to explore the arts for fun and recognition. For more information about the program, visit PTA.org/Reflections.
State winners will be announced in the spring. All district Reflections Arts Contest participants and finalists will be honored during a Council PTA Reflections Award Ceremony in April.
