Student Artwork on Display

Written by: developer

During June, winning artwork from the Space Foundation 2012 Student Art Contest was displayed at three Pikes Peak Library District locations:  Old Colorado City and Sand Creek Libraries in Colorado Springs, Colo., and at High Prairie Library in Falcon, Colo.

Each year, the Space Foundation invites students from around the world in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade to submit original artwork in three categories - painting, drawing and multimedia - depicting a specific space theme. The art is judged by a panel of art experts and the winners receive prizes and recognition by the Space Foundation.

The 2012 contest was co-sponsored by ARES Corporation and Fisher Space Pen and the theme was "Space is Infinite - Explore!" See the winning artwork and the award video at:
