As NASA explores the secrets of the universe for the benefit of all, the agency’s Commercial Crew Program is excited to announce the 2023 Children’s International Artwork Contest!

Now through Oct. 27, 2022, children ages 4 to 12 from around the world can submit artwork in space-related themes such as Astronauts, Rockets and Spacecraft, Exploring the Solar System, and Living and Working in Space. Unique and original first-, second-, and third-place artwork will be selected in three separate age groups and used to create an out-of-this-world calendar, which also will include supplemental education materials for kids to learn more about the space-related themes.

Go to the Commercial Crew 2023 Artwork Contest website for more information about the competition’s themes, rules, deadlines, and how to submit. Multiple pieces of artwork can be submitted, but all entries must be uploaded individually – no postal mail entries will be accepted. And be sure to submit artwork to the correct theme.

Special thanks to SciArt Exchange for their help with this year’s contest!*

Young Explorers’ Artwork Featured in 2016 Calendar

2016 Commercial Crew Children's Artwork CalendarSome of the best works of art come from children who are only limited by their imaginations, like the more than 150 young explorers from across the country who submitted artwork depicting human spaceflight as they see it. Sixteen masterpieces were chosen to be included in the Commercial Crew Program’s 2016 Children’s Artwork Calendar, which is now available for download here. We offer a huge “thank you!” to all the explorers, ranging in age from four to 12, who submitted their work and hope that everyone will enjoy and use this calendar next year.
