Reflections is a nationwide arts program founded in 1969 by National PTA. Every fall at Hickey, submissions are sought in six areas of art to compete in the contest. Winners move on to our Council of PTAs. Winners from Council go to Texas PTA and Texas PTA winners move on to the national contest.



Each year, a student created theme is selected for the Reflections program. The 2020-21 theme is "I Matter Because ..." . Students are encouraged to make an original piece of art to submit in one of six categories:

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

Watch this quick video calling for entries!

Registration information along with entry forms will be available from Texas PTA toward the end of summer.

We encourage all students at Hickey to participate. Working on a project for this program helps kids explore their thoughts and feelings. They're inspired to dream and become more confident through the process. We hope through participation in Reflections that our Hickey All Stars develop a lifelong love of learning and use art as a form of expression.

Check back in the fall for deadlines, entry forms and more specifics. Our current Arts in Education Chair is the contact for this program at Hickey.
