Calling all young artists

Students between the ages of 6 and 17 are invited to enter the 2015 International Aviation Art Contest by capturing the excitement of looping and spinning planes, diving hang gliders and colorful hot air balloons.

This year’s competition theme invites young people throughout Missouri to illustrate the 2015 FAI World Air Games in poster form. This year’s Word Air Games will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

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 World Air Games theme.

Entries will be 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. 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, parents and teachers may call (573) 526-2169, send an email to s.hall@modot.mo.gov or visit the national sponsor’s site, www.nasao.org.
