The deadline to submit Reflections entries to Tenth District is Monday, January 5, 2015. (You can bring them to the district by December 19th, if that is more convenient.) Five (5) entries in each art category (literature, music composition, photography, visual arts, dance choreography, film production) from the grade divisions PreK-2 and 3-5, special artist and eight (8) entries in each art category from the grade divisions 6-8 and 9-12 may be forwarded to Tenth District from each participating unit.

When forwarding entries, be sure that:

  • Entries are carefully packaged.

  • The chairman fills out the Local PTA Unit Registration Form, which is located at capta.org/reflections under the Chairman Resources section and at tenthdistrictptsa.org under Reflections Program Resources in the Forms section. This Unit Registration Form asks for the unit’s legal (official) name, 8-Digit ID number, school address, principal’s name, etc., chairman’s name, etc., the number of students enrolled in the school, the number of students participating in Reflections by grade division in each of the six arts categories, etc.
