Calling All Mustangs!!
PTA Reflections is a national PTA competition that welcomes students of all grades to get involved in the arts!!

PTA Reflections encourages students to:
● Unleash creative talents and be inspired
● Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
● Experience the fun and joy of making art
● Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
● Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

All Costa students, including Special Artists, can enter artwork in one or more of the six categories:
● Dance Choreography                           
● Film Production
● Literature                                                
● Music Composition
● Photography                                           
● Visual Arts

Artworks are submitted first to Mira Costa PTSA, where they are recognized, celebrated and judged.

The Special Artists division celebrates each artist with special needs. The first place entries are then judged by the Manhattan Beach Council of PTA’s, and next to the 33rd District PTA.

The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round
