Art & The Cosmic Connection Youth Art Contest

The Wallops Flight Facility Visitor Center is proud to announce the 70th Anniversary Youth Art Contest!

“Art & the Cosmic Connection” is the theme of this Youth Art Contest. This NASA-unique theme aims to inspire art through science. It is designed to encourage students to use the elements of art to help them understand and analyze NASA images taken from space. NASA spacecraft are visiting fascinating places and capturing images of otherworldly features that are great inspiration for art. NASA imagery of planets, moons, asteroids, comets, galaxies, and the sun will be your inspiration as you make the cosmic connection between science and art. Open to all pre-K through 12th grade students.

All entries must be submitted or postmarked by Saturday, June 13, 2015.
