30th Annual Student Art Contest

John Wayne Airport invites Orange County students grades K-12 to enter the 30th annual John Wayne Airport Student Art Contest.

The dream to fly is thousands of years old. Each generation learning from the previous of what is possible while holding on to the love of flight. Where will the next generation of aviation dreamers lead? Give free rein to your imagination and create artwork that combines the flights of the past with the dreams of the future. 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: YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW. 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: YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW, and to show us your vision!

Good luck, be creative and have fun!
