Texas PTA received over 800 entries for state-level judging, and we are proud to award nearly 600 of those entries! We are always amazed at the creativity and mastery that students show year after year. We thank all participating students for their outstanding work that truly showcased this year’s theme! And, of course, many thanks to all Local, Council, and state volunteers.
All entries awarded with an Overall Award of Excellence, Award of Excellence, Award of Merit, or Honorable Mention were celebrated at Texas PTA's Reflections Awards Ceremony on April 29th in San Antonio.
