Aviation art winners soar

The Kansas Department of Transportation’s Division of Aviation announces the Kansas winners of the 2018 International Aviation Art Contest.

Bravo Zulu was illustrated by Salome Dutoit, 17, of Andover High School. This painting won First Place in the Group III Division
The theme for this year's contest was, "Flight to the Future," which allowed schools and students around the state to explore the future of the aviation industry. Student artwork ranged from supersonic fighter jets to drones filling the skies. The contest was a great opportunity to spark interest in aviation, and also highlight Kansas student’s art prowess!


This illustration of a flying car was created by Ashlynn Gomez, 13, from  El Dorado Middle School: Her illustration won First Place in the Group II Division

Congratulations to our 2018 Aviation Art Contest Winners! First place winners from each group will take home a $500 scholarship towards aviation related activity courtesy of the Kansas Commission on Aerospace Education!

Watching the Future Fly Away, was illustrated by Finley Maloney, 8, from Saint Patrick Catholic Church of Kingman KSThis illustration won First place in the Group I Division 
Although none of the Kansas submissions were selected at the National competition, an amazing turnout of over 160 art submissions this year from all over the state were turned in.
