2020-2021 15th District PTA Awards
This year – we are not doing our traditional awards.
Let’s be honest -this year was not a traditional school year. We as PTA’s did things differently. So we want to celebrate how our PTA/PTSA thrived in this new environment. We are asking each PTA to submit their “Shout Out” to us. We want to celebrate what you did this year! If you weren’t able to do anything this year – send us a highlight of what you did last year. Please include pictures!

“Reflections” is a National PTA arts in education program. Its purpose is to provide all children and youth with an opportunity to experience the self-fulfillment of creative expression through the arts. The primary goal of Reflections is for all children and youth to have the opportunity to participate. Although it is a program with recognition and awards at the local, district, state and national levels, the importance of participation should be emphasized over winning. Students may submit entries in the areas of music, photography, visual arts, literature, and dance. Each year there is a different theme for the program. For the 2017-2018 school year, the theme will be “Heros Around Me“. Participation in the Reflections Program is open to all students in attendance at a PTA/PTSA school in good standing where the program is sponsored. Entries are advanced through PTA channels. Packets are sent out to all schools, PTA presidents, art teachers, English teachers, music teachers, and P.E. teachers at the beginning of the school year.
