International Aviation Art Contest
Each year we sponsor an art contest for Minnesota students ages 6-17. Students draw or paint a picture based on an aviation theme, and send it in to us. The winners get published in a calendar, win prizes, and come to the State Capitol to receive their rewards. This competition is part of the International Aviation Art Contest, so Minnesotan winners also go on to compete with winners from other states. Then the American winners will go on to have their artwork judged in the international competition. Read the rules for the contest, and then get busy with your markers, crayons, paints, and pencils. Click here for more information on the Art Contest.
