2012 International Aviation Art Contest
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation participated in the 2012 International Aviation Art Contest.
The Bureau of Aeronautics coordinated this year’s State contest along with the sponsorship of the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO). The Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) sponsored the international phase, to motivate and encourage young people of FAI member nations to become more familiar with and participate in space, aeronautics, engineering and science.
The 2012 theme was “Silent Flight” and artwork was judged, at least in part, for its creative use of that theme. There are 3 categories for the 2012 contest: Group I – Junior Category (date of birth between 1 January 2002 and 31 December 2005), Group II – Intermediate Category (date of birth between 1 January 1998 and 31 December 2001) and Group III – Senior Category (date of birth between 1 January 1994 and 31 December 1997). The State Winners are: Junior Category - 1st Place Emmanuela Sarour, 2nd Place Astoria Fox and 3rd Place Daniel Luciani. Intermediate Category - 1st Place Julia Hehir, 2nd Place Katherine Moran and 3rd Place Betsey Lowe. Senior Category - 1st Place Katie Belletete, 2nd Place Lillian Murphy and 3rd Place Quinton Aho.
