PTA Reflections welcomes students of all grades and all abilities to explore their inner artist. The Reflections theme for 2020-21 is "I Matter Because...".  Tell your own special story through film, song, artwork, photograph, poem, short story or a dance routine.  You may enter as many times as you like in as many categories as you like. 


Each entry must be accompanied by an official entry form.  Students need to be sure to reflect on the theme in the work they complete. Every student who participates will be recognized for their accomplishments with the opportunity for state and national awards and recognition.

We know that the love of art and celebration of students can bring people together – families, teachers, and friends in the community.  We can't wait to see what the students of Nerge School will create for this year's competition!


Please note:  Due to the current pandemic, all Reflections entries will only be accepted in an online format.  Any visual arts entries should be photographed, we will not be collecting the actual artwork at this time.   All reflections projects need to be emailed to  The entry form is included in the packet that is linked below.
