Your child’s artwork could be aboard Starliner’s next flight
Boeing and Space Foundation announced an out-of-this-world opportunity for students. Art in the Stars, a digital art showcase, invites students ages 3-18 to submit digital, space-themed artwork, which will travel to space aboard the upcoming Starliner Crew Flight Test (CFT).
As inspiration for their original art, students are encouraged to consider the theme “Breaking Boundaries in Space” and incorporate the diverse historical figures who broke boundaries to become a “first” or blazed trails for those who came after them.
South Carolina student Jillian Quamme is already taking advantage of the opportunity. She designed this artwork in honor of her father, BSC teammate Andrew Quamme.
Acceptable formats for submission include drawings, paintings, mixed media and digital media pieces. All entries must be submitted electronically through ArtShowcase.SpaceFoundation.org by Dec. 16. Permission from a parent or legal guardian is required for all entries made by students under age 18.
