The National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) and TDOT Aeronautics Division are hosting the 2017 U.S. International Aviation Art contest. The contest will begin at the State level, move to National, and then on to International competition. The International Aviation Art Contest challenges young people to illustrate the importance of aviation through art. Demonstrating the impact of aeronautics through an interactive, fun medium such as art motivates youth of all ages to become more familiar with aeronautics, engineering and science. Children between the ages of 6 and 17 may participate. Entries will be judged in three classes, according to age and at least in part for its creative use of the theme in relation to the aviation world.
