Announcing the 2021 NASA Student Art Contest.
This year’s theme is “NASA Langley: Virtually Everywhere.”
The Art Contest submission period begins Dec. 1, 2020 and concludes on Dec. 31, 2020 at midnight EST.
NASA’s influence and technology are everywhere. Whether it’s land, air or space, NASA is busy researching and discovering more about our world and our galaxy every day. That is also true in the virtual world, as the agency is leading the way in virtual learning and experiments.
NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia is inviting students in grades K-12 to creatively visualize NASA’s science, technology, aeronautical and human exploration activities in the virtual world in the 2021 NASA Langley Art Contest, using the theme “Virtually Everywhere.” The contest is open to all children grades K-12 attending public, private, parochial and homeschools who are residents of the United States, and children grades K-12 of U.S. military members stationed overseas.
We are asking schools, organizations, and community groups to encourage parents to submit one entry per student. A grand-prize winner will be selected from all entries and a first-place, second-place, third-place, and honorable-mention winner will be selected for each grade level.
Langley is contributing to NASA’s presence in the virtual space, from the agency’s NASA at Home initiative for students and their families and the My NASA Data website for Earth science mini-lessons for teachers, to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) webinars and content for students learning from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In your art, we want to see how you are inspired by the boundless potential virtual learning, research and exploration has to offer NASA and its missions.
