The Humans in Space Youth Art Competition exhibit at FPL

The Humans in Space Youth Art Competition exhibit on display now through the end of February at Friendswood Public Library

The international Humans in Space Youth Art Competition calls for youth 10-18 years old to “be inspired, creative and heard;” we invite them to  learn about space and communicate their visions of the future of space travel and exploration through visual, literary, video, and musical artwork.  The winning entries are then displayed and performed in locations worldwide and online, allowing the creativity and ideas of the young artists to inspire others and promote public dialogue about the future of space…

The Humans in Space Youth Art Competition brings together youth and adults, artists and scientists, space industries and educators, and international and local communities. It inspires people around the globe to creatively communicate their thoughts about the future, while also educating them and using their artwork to engage the broader public, fostering interest in and support for space exploration and travel.
