Calling all artists between the ages of 6 and 17, the International Aviation Art Contest is now underway! The Bureau of Aeronautics at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, in partnership with the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO), invites students to create a work of art that celebrates the adventures and excitement of the world of flight.

Rachel Miller - Ages 6-9

Lennon King - Ages 10-13

This year’s theme focuses on “Flight Into The Future.” The only limit to the future of flight is the creativity of builders, dreamers and pilots of today. Artists are encouraged to use their favorite art supplies and show their vision of what new innovations and ideas will shape aviation in the future. Entries will be judged on the creative use of the theme. The top three entries for each age group will advance to the national competition and receive the following awards:
1st Place: $100 art supply gift certificate or an airplane ride for the winner and a guest.
2nd Place: $75 art supply gift certificate.
3rd Place: $50 art supply gift certificate.

Danielle Strzelecki - Ages 14-17

The top three Wisconsin entries and an honorable mention for each age group will also have their artwork displayed in the State Capitol Rotunda in Madison.
