Reflections Art Program

2020-2021 Chair: Su Su and Li Ge 


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.


Due to the impact of COVID-19, this year's Reflection program is Going Virtual! Please follow the rules of each category and submit your entry forms and artworks virtually here.


2020-2021 Submission Deadline: November 16, 2020


Submit Your Entry Form & Artworks


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.
