    Each year, the Space Foundation International Student Art Contest invites pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students from around the world to submit original artwork based on a space-oriented theme. The 2013 contest theme, If I were going..., challenges students to imagine how they would personally experience space travel, exploration or settlement – and then interpret that idea into an original work of visual art.

    Media/art categories:
    • Drawing
    • Painting
    • Digital art

    Grade/age categories:
    • PreK-2nd (3-7 years old)
    • 3rd–5th (8-10 years old)
    • 6th-8th (11-13 years old)
    • 9th-12th (14-18 years old)

    Original Artwork must be at least 11"x17" and no larger than 18"x24". Limit of one entry per student. There is no entry fee.


    The 2013 Space Foundation International Student Art Contest is open to students enrolled in grades PreK – 12 or age equivalent.

    International entries must be categorized by equivalent ages for U.S. PreK – 12th grade.


    The Space Foundation will give a total of 41 awards to 36 Winners: 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd- Place in each of three media/art categories for each grade level/age group. One Grand Prize winner will be selected for each grade category from among the First-Place Winners in that group for a total of four Grand Prizes.

    In addition, the Space Foundation will confer a Space Foundation Achievement Award, which will be selected by the Space Foundation graphic arts team from among all the Winners.
