Deadline for entries is Jan. 23, 2015
JEFFERSON CITY - As students get back to class after the new year, teachers are reminded the deadline for entries in the 2015 International Aviation Art Contest is just a few weeks away. Get out your art supplies and create a piece capturing the excitement of looping and spinning planes, diving hang gliders and colorful hot air balloons. Young people throughout Missouri are invited to illustrate the competition aviation events of the 2015 FAI World Air Games in Dubai, UAE, in the 2015 International Aviation Art Contest.
Sponsored by several national and international organizations and supported by the Missouri Department of Transportation, the contest inspires youth to explore aeronautics, engineering and science as they illustrate the theme, "World Air Games."
Children between the ages of 6 and 17 can participate. Entries are judged in three age classes for creative use of the theme. Entries from Missouri youth will be evaluated by MoDOT employees. The winners will advance to national and possible international levels of the contest.
All artwork for the state competition must be postmarked by Friday, Jan. 23, 2015. Missouri students submitting artwork should mail it to the Missouri Department of Transportation, Attn: Teresa Hall, PO Box 270, Jefferson City, MO 65102. For more information, call (573) 526-2169, send an email to email@example.com or visit the national sponsor's site, http://www.nasao.org/test/center/internationalaviationartcontest.aspx. .
