JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT INVITES ORANGE COUNTY STUDENTS TO ENTER 28TH ANNUAL STUDENT ART CONTEST
SANTA ANA, Calif. – John Wayne Airport’s (JWA) 28th annual Student Art Contest is underway. All Orange County public and private school students, including home-schooled students, in grades kindergarten through 12 are encouraged to submit artwork inspired by this year’s theme, “Flying in the Future.” Entries should be submitted to the Orange County Department of Education, any Orange County Public Library Branch or participating city libraries, no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, November 9, 2017.
“John Wayne Airport’s Student Art Contest is an opportunity for the young artists of Orange County to be recognized for their creativity,” said Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Michelle Steel. “Airport guests will be able to view our community’s great talent at the Student Art Contest Exhibition from December to January.”
Selected by sponsors of the International Aviation Art Contest, the contest theme differs each year. Artworks that best depict this year’s contest theme are selected for exhibition and prizes. Winners and honorable mentions from grades K–12 will be exhibited from December 6, 2017 until January 8, 2018, on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.
