Space Art Contest
In partnership with Arts Month 2021, Planet Walk Colorado Springs is sponsoring a space-themed art contest for all students from the Colorado Springs region in grades K through 12. Electronic entries will be accepted for Visual Art beginning October 1st, 2021. The original versions of each piece must be submitted by October 8, 2021.
$250 in total prizes will be awarded, including one $75 first place and one $25 second place certificate in each category. A special $50 award for Best-of-Show will also be awarded by the judges. All contest entries will be displayed online in a virtual art exhibition.
The event will also include a self-guided inner solar system tour at the Cool Science Festival located on the UCCS campus from 10 AM – 4 PM. The tour starts at the Planet Walk table (which will represent the Sun) near the Student Union on campus and extend as far as Mars, on the western edge of campus. If you like the idea of seeing Mars, but not the idea of zero oxygen, food or Starbucks, visit Mars with us, not with Elon Musk!
All entries must be emailed as JPG, WORD, or PDF files by October 1st to [email protected]. Please put “Art Contest” in the email subject line, and you must include the following information:
