The Kansas Department of Transportation have announced the winners of the 2020 Kansas Aviation Art Contest.
The contest is designed to challenge young people to use creative expression through art to illustrate the importance of aviation. Artists ages 6-17 were divided in three age categories (junior, intermediate and senior) to create art that celebrates the adventure and excitement of aviation. The theme for this year’s contest was “Flying Yesterday and Tomorrow.."
Some local winners in junior category are: Lily Weidemier, and Tripp Pelzel of McPherson and Journey Linthicum of Parsons. The first-place winner in each age group receives a prize package which includes a drone and a tablet among other prizes.
State winners will be submitted to the International Aviation Art Contest hosted by International Aeronautical Federation.
