Aviation Art Contest Deadline Approaching

If you know someone between the ages of 6 and 17 who is looking for an artistic outlet, then the Young Artist Contest is a great opportunity for them to show off those creative art skills.

The deadline for Virginia residents to have their art postmarked and sent to the Virginia Department of Aviation is January 19, 2021. An entry form must be attached to the back of the artwork. Click the link for more details and for the Art Contest Brochure.

Since 1989 the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) has hosted the Young Artist Contest, which is an International aviation art contest that challenges youth to illustrate the importance of aviation through art. This year’s theme is “A Friendlier World With Air Sports.” Demonstrating the impact of aeronautics through an interactive and fun medium, such as art, motivates youth of all ages to become more familiar with aeronautics, engineering, and science. 

Please share this with young artists in Virginia. Parents and Guardians can enter their children, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren’s artwork. Teachers can also submit their student’s artwork. This contest is a good opportunity for students to learn about aviation and enhance their artistic skills.

We look forward to seeing your visionary and innovative art submissions!
