Results From the 2023-2024 National PTA Reflections Theme Search Contest

Thank you to all students who participated in the National PTA Reflections program theme search! With nearly 500 theme suggestions, it was very difficult to decide on which five themes to send to National PTA.

Without further ado, congratulations to the five students selected to represent Texas PTA at national-level judging. National PTA will select one exceptional theme from the nationwide search to inspire creativity for the 2023-2024 PTA Reflections program. The student who submits the winning entry will receive $100, and his or her theme will be announced by National PTA in June 2022. Good luck to Isaac, Hannah, Kayvaan, Adric and Liam!
