Welcome

 

The international Humans in Space Youth Art Competition encourages youth to “Be Inspired, Creative and Heard.” We ask them to think about the future of human space flight and to creatively communicate their ideas, and we promise to make these ideas viewable worldwide.  By including the next generation in the planning of the future, the competition aims to enhance their awareness, interest in and support for human space flight, and to allow their ideas to begin shaping the future now.

 

The competition invites young people from 10 to18 years of age to submit visual, literary, musical and video artwork expressing their vision. Their submissions are judged by an international panel including artists, scientists, teachers, engineers, astronauts and others. The winning artwork is woven into displays and performances designed to relay the youth artists’ messages to other young people and adults around the world.

 

 

 

Calling Youth Worldwide

The youth of today will be engaged in shaping the future of space exploration. Although we have learned a great deal about space, so much more is still unknown.  We invite you to explore what we currently know and use this knowledge to communicate your vision of the future.
