This arts program is open to any student through a local PTA/PTSA in good standing as of October 15 of each year.  Students, grades P-12, may submit entries in six categories: literature, musical composition, photography, visual arts, dance choreography, and film production. Students may submit an entry in any (or all) category (categories).  Reflections entries are judged at the local level, the district level, then at the state level. Kentucky PTA winning entries are sent to National PTA. Kentucky has had National winners for several years. Contact your local or district PTA/PTSA for deadlines.
PTA Kids Day
http://www.kypta.org/site/programs/kentucky-pta-kids-day.html

Kentucky PTA Kids' Day was established in 1985 to set aside one day just for our students. The goal is to send the message to each child that he or she is a special and unique individual who is respected and loved. Kentucky PTA Kids' Day also serves as a day to make the public aware of the educational and personal needs of children and the role they play as our most important natural resource.
Rock & Read
http://www.kypta.org/site/programs/rock–read.html

Rock and Read is an inclusive, inter-generational program involving grandparents and senior citizen volunteers who read to young children or listen to older students read.  Rock and Read is simply reading to children in early childhood and primary grades and reading with children in intermediate grades. Rock and Read will help children develop readiness skills necessary for learning to read; enjoy the learning process; and develop self-esteem and emotional maturity through a nuturing relationship.
