NASA art contest - open to high school and college students Answered

From NASA'S official website:

"The National Aeronautics and Space Administration invites high school and college students from all areas of study to enter, including the arts, industrial design, architecture, computer design, and the fine arts. Students are asked to submit their work on the theme: Life and Work on the Moon. Artists are encouraged to collaborate with science and engineering students. Such collaboration is not required, but would help to ensure that the art is valid for the Moon’s harsh environment. Any full time student can enter, regardless of major or area of study.

Entries will be accepted in three categories: two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and digital, including video. Entries will be evaluated not only on their artistic qualities, but also on whether they depict a valid scenario. Prizes include awards and exhibit opportunities. Entries are due no later than April 15, 2009.

Entries will be accepted in three major categories: two-dimensional, three dimensional and digital. Each category will have pre-determined size limits.

  • All entries are due no later than April 15, 2009 for College entries and April 15, 2009 for High School entries.
  • Cash prizes, certificates of achievement, and exhibit opportunities are planned.
  • We expect that winners will be announced in May of 2009.
  • All entries will initially be submitted digitally as 300 dpi jpeg images.
  • An on-line gallery is planned for public viewing of the artwork.
  • Winners will be asked to ship their work to NASA for exhibit purposes."

So what are you waiting for?! As Eric would say, go make something awesome!


Does Junior high count? Junior high is 7-8 grades.

:-( I don't think so. However, if you click on the link there's an email address to which you can email that question.

Probably not, here it is 6-8th grade.
