2013 International Aviation Art Contest

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation participated in the 2013 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 2013 theme was “My Favorite Air Sport ” and artwork was judged, at least in part, for its creative use of that theme. There were 3 categories for the 2013 contest: Group I – Junior Category (date of birth between 1 January 2003 and 31 December 2006), Group II – Intermediate Category (date of birth between 1 January 1999 and 31 December 2002) and Group III – Senior Category (date of birth between 1 January 1995 and 31 December 1998).  The State Winners were: Junior Category - 1st Place Alisha Juneja, 2nd Place Ava Morandi and 3rd Place Kai Jimeno. Intermediate Category - 1st Place Christopher Panagiotes, 2nd Place Trai Jimeno and 3rd Place Grace Chadbourne. Senior Category - 1st Place Chance Kirby, 2nd Place Elijah Salter and 3rd Place Tabby Launder.
