Several Prizes Up For Grabs, Including An Airplane Ride
Students in the state of Wisconsin have an opportunity to show
their love for aviation through an art contest sponsored each year
by the Wisconsin DOT. Through the program, the WisDOT Bureau of
Aeronautics encourages children ages seven to 17 to showcase their
artistic talent by participating in its annual statewide contest.
This year’s theme is “Silent Flight.” It
celebrates and honors air travel that is only powered by wind.
Examples include kites, gliders, paragliders and hot air
The top three entries in three different age divisions will
advance to the national competition, with the potential to be
entered in the international aviation art contest.
In addition, statewide winners will receive the following
- First place: $100 art supply gift certificate OR an airplane
ride for two
- Second place: $75 art supply gift certificate
- Third place: $50 art supply gift certificate
All artwork must be original and cannot be computer generated.
For complete contest rules and the appropriate entry form, visit
the WisDOT Web site. Entries must be postmarked by Friday, January
