For thousands of years, explorers drew lines in the sky to connect the stars and reveal constellations illuminating the path of discovery to new worlds. Today, as we are surrounded by the destination of those designs, we must recognize the interwoven relationship between science, technology and art that has brought us here. In that tradition of artistic exploration, spurred by giant leaps and sonic booms, we again reach to reveal the next frontier. A new generation of explorers have possession of more information, better technology, and bigger dreams than ever before. But just as it was thousands of years ago, the next step of discovery is, as it always has been, to connect the dots.
NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia is inviting students in grades K-12 to participate in the 2024 NASA Langley Art Contest, using the theme “Connect the Dots.” The contest is open to all children who are residents of the United States and currently in grade K-12
The Art Contest submission period begins Dec. 1, 2023 and concludes on Dec. 31, 2023 at midnight EST.
Beginning December 1, there will be an option to submit artwork on this page.
We are asking schools, organizations, and community groups to encourage parents and teachers 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.
