    Each year, the Space Foundation International Student Art Contest invites pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students from around the world to submit original artwork based on a space-oriented theme.

    The 2015 contest theme, The View From My Spaceship..., challenges students to design their own concept of a view looking into space from a spaceship - and then interpret that idea into an original work of visual art.

    Acceptable artwork media/format:

    Drawing
    Painting
    Mixed Media
    Digital Art

    • 3-4 years
    • 5-6 years
    • 7-8 years
    • 9-10 years
    • 11-12 years
    • 13-14 years
    • 15-16 years
    • 17-18 years

    Although there are no any specific size requirements since submission is digital, the ideal size for entries should be no smaller than 11” x 17” and no larger than 18”x 24”. Limit of one entry per student.

    There is no entry fee.
