Announcing the 2023 NASA Langley Student Art Contest
Big things are brewing at NASA. We’re filled with excitement over the launch of uncrewed Artemis 1, the first major step in a series of Artemis missions that will take humans, including, for the first time, a woman, to the Moon and eventually on to Mars. We’re also getting closer and closer to zipping across the sky with the completion of the X-59 QueSST, a passenger aircraft that will zoom from one side of the continent to the other at supersonic speed, but with a sonic “thump” that’s only about as loud as a car door closing. And last, but certainly not least, we’re readying to launch a satellite instrument that will give us critical information about the very air we breathe. Tropospheric Emissions Monitoring of Pollution, or TEMPO, will collect hourly daytime measurements of air pollution over North America and provide data that could, in the hands of certain decision makers, make everyone breathe a little easier.
So with these major innovations in space technology, aeronautics and Earth science in mind, we’re asking you to think big, allow your creativity to bloom and help us imagine “what’s next?”
NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia is inviting students in grades K-12 to draw, paint or design what’s next in science, aeronautics, and exploration in the 2023 NASA Langley Student Art Contest. 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, 2022 and concludes on Dec. 31, 2022 at midnight EST.
