Committee Chairperson:  Shelagh Clark  (

More than 200 Pleasant Valley students entered the Reflections contest last year in order to enhance their fine arts expression and education. Riverdale Heights had 38 entries, and several of those entries competed at the state level! This year you can be part of the fun too, as we hope to reach 50 entries! Use your creativity to tell us what this year’s theme means to you:  Within Reach

 Express yourself by creating an original work of art that relates to the theme in one or more of the following six categories:

(The Iowa PTA link for the categories listed hasn't been updated yet.  To double check click here.) Each student may submit up to four entries in each category. All entries are scored by experienced judges. The top four scores in each category and age group go on to compete at the state level. State winners are then submitted for National PTA Reflections® awards.

It is very important that you read and follow the rules for each entry category. All Reflection entries are due Thursday, October 26, 2017. It is highly recommended that a parent drop off the Reflection entries before school on October 26th. The chair of the Riverdale Heights Reflection Program will be in the office that morning from 8-8:30 am. For questions or more information, please contact Shelagh Clark,, 630-631-9077
