    The annual Space Settlement Contest, co-operated by NASA Ames Research Center, San Jose State University and the National Space Society, invites all students around the world up to 12th grade (18 years old) to participate in its 2018 edition.

    Designs, original research, essays, stories, models, artwork or any other orbital space settlement related materials may be submitted. Settlements may not be on a planet or moon and must be permanent, relatively self-sufficient homes, not temporary work camps.

    Submissions must be made in hard copy. No electronic submissions are accepted. However, you may create an electronic project, such as a video or website, and send a hard copy description of the project. The description should include images and text to describe the project in sufficient detail for judgement.

    Instructors, mentors or parents may assist the student by presenting relevant resources, discussing core concepts and minor editing, but the work itself must be entirely student driven.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open to all students around the world up to 12th grade (18 years old).

    Prize


    The single highest scoring team or individual attending will receive the 3,000 USD NSS Bruce M. Clark Jr. Memorial Space Settlement Award. All participants will receive a NASA certificate, and the best submission will be placed on the NASA Ames website.

    Moreover, all contest participants are invited to attend the NSS 37th annual International Space Development Conference in St. Louis, USA, 24-27 May 2018.
