Aviation Art Contest 2021 - "A Friendlier World With Air Sports

When we think of aviation, our first thoughts go to the sky. We imagine what it would be like soaring through the air in a glider, floating across the sky in a hot air balloon, or maybe even twisting and looping through clouds in an aerobatic plane. Working together, a group of aviation enthusiasts can accomplish what one person alone never could. The friendships created in this process are one of the things that keeps people coming back to air sports again and again. Air shows, of course, offer it all. Everyone is invited to share in the joy that sport aviation produces. Pilots love talking about their planes, ground crews share the work required to keep everything safe and in top shape. A single parachutist in the sky can hold the attention of hundreds of people below. Air sports brings people together and creates friendships that connect people from all over the world and of all ages.

 

For youngsters from ages 6 thru 17, it is time to get out your favorite artist supplies and give free rein to your imagination by creating a poster that represents your thoughts when you think about the theme of “A Friendlier World With Air Sports” for the Aviation Art Contest 2021. Due date for all entries is January 19, 2021. For further details and/or an entry brochure contact David Morris at the NDOT – Division of Aeronautics, david.morris@nebraska.gov or call 402-471-2371.
