The power of imagination is only as good as putting those hopes and dreams onto paper. NASA’s missions and achievements share a common start on the proverbial drawing board and come to life in many ways to benefit all of humankind.
NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia is inviting students in grades K-12 to creatively visualize NASA’s science, technology, aeronautical and human exploration activities in the 2022 NASA Langley Art Contest, using the theme “Drawn to Explore.” The contest is open to all children grades K-12 attending public, private, parochial and homeschools who are residents of the United States.
The Art Contest submission period begins Dec. 1, 2021 and concludes on Dec. 31, 2021 at midnight EST.
We are asking schools, organizations, and community groups to encourage parents to submit one entry per student. A grand-prize winner will be selected from all entries and a first-place, second-place, third-place, and honorable-mention winner will be selected for each grade level.
In your art, we want to see how you take your print or digital artwork from brainstorming to completion related to NASA and its missions – whether its ways for humans to go beyond low-Earth orbit into deep space, technology to study Earth and its climate systems, aerial vehicles to take humans to new heights in the sky, or icons to emulate in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields of study.
