Reflections

2021-2022 LJ Reflections Call for Entries

Reflections is a National PTA-sponsored program that encourages students to express themselves through the arts. Students can submit work in the following six categories: Dance Choreography, Music Composition, Literature, Film Production, Visual Arts and Photography. The art is judged at the school level with the winner in each category moving on to the County level, then District level, State level and finally National level. This year, similar to last year, all the Reflections entries will be digital.

This year’s theme is: “I Will Change the World By…”
