National PTA Reflections Art program

 

The theme for this year's submission is "Show Your Voice!"

 

Please read the following carefully, and contact Ann Kartchner at reflections@aomsptsa.org with any questions:

 

1. Follow this link to get a copy of the Reflections rules and general information: Student Packet

 

2. Please also read through the Guidelines for the category or categories in which you are entering your work (you can submit as many entries as you want!): 

Dance Choreography

Film Production

Literature

Music Composition

Photography

Visual Arts

Special Artists Division

 

3. When you are ready to submit your entry, you will need to complete this Google Form: AOMS 2022 Student Entry Form. Please note the following when completing the form:

  • Do not enter your carlsbadusd.net email address in the Email field on the first page of the form! Please use a parent email address, and make sure you or your parent are logged into your parent's Google account prior to filling out the form.

  • The Artist Statement section of the Google form holds a great deal of weight at the upper levels of judging. The better you can articulate the relationship between the theme and your work, the better chance your piece has to advance through the levels of judging. The Artist Statement is super important, so don't skimp on it! 

  • Before you upload the required photos or other files to the form, please save them with the file name formatted like this: "Last Name, First Name - Category" (for example: my file name would be Kartchner, Ann – Visual Arts). 

  • VERY IMPORTANT: The last page of the form says, "Thank you for participating in the Reflections program" and has the National PTA logo - it looks like a confirmation page, but your form has not been submitted yet! Scroll down past the logo and click Submit. I will not receive your form or files if you do not click Submit. If you want to make sure I received your form, please email me at reflections@aomsptsa.org.

4. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 28, 2022. If you are entering in the Visual Arts or Photography categories, please bring your physical entry to the main office (making sure to put your name on the back). Your Google form along with any digital photos and other files that are required per the instructions on the form is also due on this date.

5. Have fun, and don’t hesitate to email with questions!
