Judging

Reflections Judging in Seven Easy Steps

Step One: Identify and recruit Volunteers and judges to help you with your Reflections program. Remember that it’s best to have judges who are not closely affiliated with your campus.
Step Two: Verify eligibility of all entries received, including National PTA arts category rules and Texas PTA membership requirements. It’s important to be proactive in working with families to resolve any eligibility concerns prior to judging.
Step Three: Host your Reflections judging. Guidelines and suggested Scorecards are available for download. Council PTAs and Regional Coordinators should follow these judging Guidelines.
Step Four: Download and complete the Advancing Entry Spreadsheet.
Step Five:  Following your judging, complete the Local PTA Participation Summary (available in October)
Step Six:  Advance entries to next round of judging on December 7, 10am-6pm at the NAC
Step Seven: Celebrate your students and Volunteers! Themed ribbons and certificates may be purchased through Texas PTA’s online market. Download a Certificate Template for easier printing! (New ribbon and certificate designs will be available in October.)
