Aviation art has long been revered as a means of capturing historical moments or producing inspirational images. We believe in cultivating the artistic talents of young people. Perhaps through these efforts, the next wave of aviation artists like Robert Taylor, Jim Laurier, or Stan Stokes will be discovered.

The Planes of Fame Air Museum’s Student Art Contest is an annual activity open to all students enrolled or home-schooled in grades 1 thru 6. Students are invited to submit an 8.5” x 11” drawing based upon the theme for the year.  Mediums include watercolor, acrylic, oil paint, indelible markers, or crayon.

There are three judging categories based upon grade levels.

This year’s contest runs from August until October 19, 2019. A panel of judges will select the first round of finalists.  The contest runs from late July until October. A panel of judges selects the first round of finalists.  Attendees at the annual Planes of Fame Air Museum “Taste of Flight Gala” select the winning entries.

The contest awards prizes valued at over $1,200 to First Place, Second Place, and Third Place winners in each category.

The 2019 theme is “Let Your Dreams Take Flight!”
