SACRAMENTO — California State PTA is pleased to announce that Rylee Stier has been selected as the 2020-2021 National PTA Reflections Theme Search Contest winner! Rylee is a 1st grade student from Thirteenth District PTA, which covers Butte, Shasta, Tehama and Trinity counties. Rylee’s submission, “I Matter Because…” was selected from nearly 100 student submissions across 21 states.

“We could not be more proud of Rylee and all the students who participate in both the Reflections art program and the Reflections theme search. Thirteenth District PTA has been affected by recent wildfires that devastated the area, and this is a wonderful achievement for the community and for the entire state of California,” said California State PTA President Dianna MacDonald.

National PTA’s Reflections art program engages nearly 300,000 students and their families in arts education activities each year by encouraging students to explore the arts for fun and recognition. Students from pre-K through high school submit works of art in six categories: dance choreography, literature, photography, film production, music composition and visual arts.

As the National PTA Theme Search Contest winner, Rylee will receive $100 from National PTA and recognition in their 2019 Awards & Reflections Celebration program at their annual convention. Congratulations to Rylee for selecting the Reflections 2020-2021 theme!
