MODOT Youth Art Competition to Illustrate How “Flying Saves Lives”

JEFFERSON CITY – Fighting wildfires, delivering relief supplies and medical evacuation are only a few ways flight is used to save lives. Young people throughout Missouri are invited to illustrate these and other lifesaving flights as part of the 2014 International Aviation Art Contest.

Sponsored by the Missouri Department of Transportation and several other national and international organizations, the contest inspires youth to explore aeronautics, engineering and science as they illustrate the theme, “Flying Saves Lives.”

Children between the ages of 6 and 17 can participate. Entries are judged in three age classes for creative use of the theme. Entries from Missouri youth will be evaluated by MoDOT employees. The winners will advance to national and possible international levels of the contest.

All artwork for the state competition must be postmarked by Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. For the mailing address and official rules, contact MoDOT’s Aviation office. Call (573) 526-2169, send an email to s.hall@modot.mo.gov or visit the national sponsor’s site, www.nasao.org.
