Space art competition for kids

By Phil Plait

More art and science are colliding! The Lunar and Planetary Institute is hosting the Humans in Space Youth Art Competition. Kids from anywhere in the world ages 10 - 18 are encouraged to express their feelings about human spaceflight using "...visual, literary, musical and video artwork".

I'm a big supporter of scientific art, and I think this is a great idea. If you're that age, or know someone who is, let them know! The deadline for submitting the work is midnight U.S. Central Standard Time, November 15, 2012. The website has the details.

Go! Be artistic!
