STUDENT ART CONTEST

28th Annual John Wayne Airport Student Art Contest

Call for Entries!

28th Annual Student Art Contest

John Wayne Airport invites Orange County students to enter the 28th annual John Wayne Airport Student Art Contest.

What new innovations and ideas will shape the aviation of the future? From hang gliders and parachutists, to drone pilots and citizen astronauts, the only limit to the future of flight is the imagination of builders, dreamers and pilots of today. It’s time to tap into your own imagination, grab your favorite set of crayons, markers, pencils or paints and create an artwork depicting FLYING IN THE FUTURE. Show us your ideas of what can happen when people work together and follow their passion for flight.

The aim is to create a picture that illustrates this year's theme FLYING IN THE FUTURE, and to show us your vision!

Good luck, be creative and have fun!
