Northwood PTA

~Reflections art contest~


The 2016-2017 theme is:  What is Your Story?

The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works. 

Each year, Reflections challenges students to create art that supports a specific theme. Themes are selected from thousands of ideas submitted by students to National PTA's Reflections Theme Search. 

Congratulations to all Northwood Reflections participants!
