36th Annual Student Aviation Art Competition Winners

Competition Theme


The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force’s 36th Annual Student Aviation Art Competition will be open on March 1 to students from around the country.

 

The theme for this year’s competition focuses on the fact that July 2019 marks 50 years since humans first walked upon any surface other than planet Earth. On July 20, 1969, as part of the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong took that “giant leap” onto the surface of the moon.

 

Student artists are asked to consider the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and what it would look like if mankind returned to the moon today. Students may use such art mediums as watercolor, tempera paint, ink, crayon, marker, colored pencil, pastel, chalk, and mixed.
