“Air, Sports and Nature in Harmony” is this year’s theme for the Aviation Art Contest sponsored by the Nebraska Department of Aeronautics. Division Manager of Flight Operations David Morris encourages young people from across the state to participate.
Morris says, “From above, the fullness of nature is seen in ways unknowable from the ground. From the air, one is able to take pictures and film that otherwise would never be seen and aircraft can do this without the need of roads. While air sports participants enjoy this freedom they must also be good neighbors to people, animals and the environment.”
Nebraska youth are invited to grab their favorite artist’s tool and create a poster celebrating their own thoughts. There are three age categories of contestants; 6-9, 10-13 and 14-17.
Morris says students will be judged at the state level. Entries must be submitted by January 22, 2016. The winners will be announced in April and the winners will be forwarded to Washington DC to be judged at the national level. Those winners will go on to compete in the international competition in Switzerland.
