    The holidays are in full swing and that means so is the National Reflections Program!!!

    Here is a bullet point check-list:

    • Local units are planning or have completed recognizing the winners at their local levels. Local chairs that are part of a Council are ready to move on their top 5 winners in each category to their Council level chair-person.
    • Local units that are NOT part of a Council need to arrange with their Region Director/Region Reflections Chair-person to drop off their top 5 winning entries in each category for the NON-Council level of judging by the December 1, 2017 deadline.
    • Council Reflection Chairs will arrange with their Region Director/ Region Reflections Chair-person to move their top 5 winning entries to Region level judging by January 5, 2018 deadline.
    • BE SURE you included your completed participation, inventory and entry forms AND they are filled in FULLY, signed and initaled. These properly completed forms ensure that your students entries move onto the next level of judging without risk of disqualification. Also, it ensures that the entries get returned to the correct Region/Council/Local chair-people.
    • Please check YOUR Region's 'PAGE' on papta.org for information on who your contact is. Please remember it is the resposibility of the chair-person MOVING entries to the next level of judging to ensure the entries get to the next level chair-person.
