Reflections Student Theme Search Contest

The ART can’t start without an Annual Theme, and we need your help finding the 2022-2023 Reflections Theme!

Thank you to all the students who participated in the annual Reflections Theme Search contest. All submissions will be reviewed by CAPTA’s Reflections Committee, who will forward their favorite theme ideas to National PTA for consideration. From the nationwide search, one exceptional theme will be selected to inspire creativity in Reflections Program participants. The theme will be announced by National PTA in June 2020 and the student who submits the winning entry will receive $100.

The 2020-2021 theme is,  I Matter Because…

Theme provided by our very own, California State PTA Student – Rylee Stier, Thirteenth District PTA!
