Written by: developer
Students from around the world, ages 3 to 18 years, are invited to enter the Space Foundation’s fifth annual International Student Art Contest. Children may draw, paint or create a digital image of their idea of the view looking into space from a spaceship for the contest theme “The View From My Spaceship.”
