2017/2018 Aeronautics Art Contest

Aerospace Art Contest Starts Now!
Winners to be Announced by March 12, 2018


Boise, ID – The Idaho Division of Aeronautics is sponsoring a statewide, aviation-themed art contest from now through March 1, 2018. The theme is “Careers in Aerospace” and the contest is divided into Standard Artwork and Digital Artwork categories.


The Standard Artwork Category is split into five age groups for youths ranging from 5 to 18 years old. Among the requirements are the relevance to the theme, a signed certificate of authenticity accompanying the artwork, and no pencil, charcoal, collage, digital, or clip art. Winners in each age group will receive prizes that include an invitation to ride in a small airplane and attend an awards ceremony.


The Digital Artwork Category targets 14 to 20 year olds. It is a design challenge to create the official logo for the 2018 Aerospace Career Exploration (ACE) Academy. Requirements include relevance to the theme, a good understanding of ACE Academy, suitability for use on the internet and on apparel, and simplicity.


According to Rich Stowell, “We want to create a connection between the art contest and ACE Academy this year.” He added, “We are very excited about the digital artwork category, and can’t wait to see what kinds of logos are submitted to represent ACE Academy.”


The deadline to enter is March 1, 2018. To download an application to enter the art contest, see http://aceacademy.aero/art-contest.

McCall Chapter Teams Up With the City of McCall to Sponsor Aviation Pocket Park

Work was begun on the Pocket Park at the McCall Chapter Work Party held on September 8th.  Those helping put up fence and did other prep work.  The Park will increase the positive visibility of aviation in McCall to the thousands of people who traverse the walking and cycling path each year. There will be an elevated traffic pattern observational area, a kiosk with a CTAF/AWOS scanner, and MYL historical information. Plans are under discussion to expand the park once the basics are set up. Thanks go to Jay Sherer, McCall Airport Manager, for getting the dream off the ground.
