Creative Youth Are Being Sought For An Aviation Art Contest, Register By January 17

LINCOLN – Youth age 6 – 17 years old will be allowed the opportunity to create a poster for an upcoming Aviation Art Contest.

According to a release from the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT), the dream to fly is thousands of years old and the ancient stories from around the world of those who wanted to take flight started to become reality in the late 1800’s.

Youngsters are encouraged to get out their favorite artist supplies and give free rein to your imagination to create a poster for the Aviation Art Contest in 2020. The artist can combine the flights of the past with the dreams of the future as this year’s’ theme is “Flying Yesterday and Tomorrow.”

Each generation has learned what is possible while holding true to the love of flight that is in the heart of all aviators.

The first airplanes were made of cloth and wood as those early crafts were powered by engines that produced around 12 horsepower. While the physics of flight remains the same, the technology is always advancing. Aviators have shown what is possible today. What does the future hold? Where will the young aviation dreamers of today lead us?

For further details and/or an entry brochure contact David Morris at the NDOT – Division of Aeronautics  by emailing or calling 402-471-2371. All entries must be postmarked no later than January 17, 2020.
