2019-2020 National PTA Reflections Theme Search Finalists

Thank you to all students who participated in the National PTA Reflections program theme search!

The California State PTA Reflections Committee was thrilled to have over 215 California theme search entries.  After much though and careful consideration, the Reflections Committee decided on the five themes California State PTA will send to National PTA for its decision making process.

Congratulations to the five students whose theme ideas were selected to represent California State PTA!

National PTA will select one exceptional theme, from the nationwide search, to inspire creativity for the 2019-2020 PTA Reflections program.  The theme will be announced by National PTA in June 2018 and the student who submitted the winning entry will receive $100.

Good luck to Jakob and Saher (who both, separately submitted the same suggestion), Kristina (who submitted two selected entries), Elle and Taylor.
