Reflections 2022-2023

This year's theme is:
"Show Your Voice"

The Reflections Program is a National PTA arts competition for students from pre-K through grade 12. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works of art in response to a theme. 2022 - 2023 Submission Deadline: December 2, 2022












The winners' artworks will be advanced to Bellevue Council level and have a chance to advance to state and national level. We will celebrate all participants' artworks with an online art show.


Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 students are encouraged to submit original works of art in one or more of the following categories (Clyde Hill is reducing the category submissions this year):

  • Literature – works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, prose, drama, short stories and lyrics.

  • Musical Composition – original musical composition, with or without words.

  • Photography – color or black and white, included techniques: photogram, negative sandwich, and multiple exposure. 

  • Visual Arts – drawing, painting in tempera, oil, acrylic, watercolor & t-shirt paints, computer generated art, two-dimensional collage, printmaking, needlework & leather tooling.


Special Artist Division: Students with disabilities may receive special accommodations by entering the special artist division and are encouraged to enter any category.
