The Reflections Program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.
The theme for the 2020-2021 program year is I Matter Because...

Charlotte G.: Click Here to watch Charlotte's Video submission - Outstanding Interpretation - “You matter”
Everyone's story is different, but they are all equally important. This short film follows the life of Anne Thompson, from her humble beginnings to her accomplishments as a U.S. president and beyond. As a child, Anne wasn't accepted for who she was and had to fight for her beliefs. With endless support from her father and teachers, she made a change in the world. Anne's story reminds us that all children have unlimited potential and all of us can make a difference in the world.
Sruthi V.: Visual Arts (shown below) - Outstanding Interpretation - “The bond that cannot be broken”
My painting is a tribute to the strong bond that I share with my younger sister. I am her steadfast rock in this ever-changing world. Knowing 'I matter' to her makes me try to be the best version of myself. I want my sister to face any hurdle in life with courage and confidence because I would always have her back. Through good times and bad we would be there for each other, creating beautiful memories along the way.
Victoria P.: Visual Arts (shown below) - Award of Merit - "Tokens of Affection"
My work is a girl (representing me) holding a scrapbook, looking amazed as pictures are flying. It relates to the theme, as I matter because I have people who love me. To me, a scrapbook is an important way to showcase memories with loved ones. In the pictures, I drew different milestones, friends and family, people who love me for who I am, which I think is very important. I matter to these people and we all matter to our loved ones. We all have at least one person who loves us and I am blessed to have many!
