RALEIGH – The NC Department of Transportation is accepting submissions from students and teachers for its 2023 North Carolina Aviation Art Contest through Jan. 17.

This year’s theme is “Air Sports and the Environment”. All North Carolina students born between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2016 are eligible to submit entries in one of three age groups: Junior (ages 6-9), Intermediate (ages 10-13), and Senior (age 14-17).

Each entry in each age group has a chance to compete for one of three prizes awarded to the student and their school. The North Carolina Museum of Art features the top 10 winners in each age group.

Visit the NCDOT website for eligibility and submission details. If you have any questions, contact Contest Coordinator Corbi Bulluck at [email protected] or (919) 814-0550.

The three winners in each group of the North Carolina competition will advance to the national competition hosted by the National Association of State Aviation Officials in Washington DC.

The competition is funded in part by the North Carolina Airports Association and its member donors. Since the contest began in 2015, 10,349 students from 720 schools and 93 North Carolina counties have submitted entries.
