Additional information

If needed, add any other context about the problem here.

You can set (or reset) widgets by directly accessing their value via their key in session state.

import streamlit as st

st.selectbox('Select:',['Please Select',1,2,3],key='selection')

def reset():
    st.session_state.selection = 'Please Select'

st.button('Reset', on_click=reset)

I have a video about changing widgets through session state here: Session State Introduction
