developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage
students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the
Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific
theme and create original artwork. Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through
12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through dance choreography,
film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.
2012, the Special Artist Division emerged as an optional division for students
whose physical, cognitive, or mental health challenges meet ADA guidelines.
