Reflections is a creative arts competition through the Washington State PTA and National PTA to encourage students to express their creative talents through their own original works. It will be run completely virtual this year from the school level all the way to the national level. Each year, Reflections challenges students to align their art to support a specific theme. Students will learn more about this program during their October library rotations. Entries will be due November 12th.

Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade Cedar Wood students can submit entries in any of the six arts areas:

  • Literature
  • Music Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts
  • Video or Film Production
  • Dance Choreography

Entries are judged on creativity, technique, and interpretation of the theme. This year Cedar Wood students will need to submit entries virtually by Friday, November 12th.  Entries should be submitted to Michael Wheeler at

Winners of this school level competition will be announced during library rotations this year instead of our typical in-person celebration with an art exhibition.  If entries are recognized at the next levels such as District, State, or National competitions then those Students will be informed by representatives at those levels.  Best of luck to all our students!
