Reflections Art Recognition Program

The Reflections Art Program is a nationally run art contest that allows students of all ages and abilities to explore their own ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and grow through their involvement with the arts. Students are celebrated and recognized for their artistic ingenuity in interpreting a theme in a personal and meaningful way. Each year students from across the nation submit ideas to be considered for this theme. 

The 2023-2024 school year theme is "I am Hopeful Because...”.

Students work in the medium of their choice and will submit their work in one of the following categories (follow links for category specific entry requirements):

Submission Process

Each student must submit digital images or files of their entry along with the submission form to The entry form must be completely
filled out, including artist statement and signature line. The artist statement is just as important to the judging process as the art itself, please explain clearly why you
chose to create your art in response to this year’s theme. 

Following this date all works will be judged in their division; primary (K - 2nd), intermediate (3rd - 5th), and special artist. Advancing works will move on to the district
level (Council) for an opportunity to advance to the state level.
