Results for the 2019 Student Art Contest

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 through 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.

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

The 2019 theme was “Let Your Dreams Take Flight.” This year’s contest attracted over 250 entries from throughout Southern California. A panel of judges selected the first round of finalists and attendees at the annual Planes of Fame Air Museum “Taste of Flight Gala” then selected the winning entries.

Congratulations to all the winners! Here are the 2019 winning entries for each category:

Category One: Grades 1st & 2nd

First Place: Hei Wu

Second Place: Elijah

Third Place: Angie

Category Two: Grades 3rd & 4th
