Orange County budding artists, from kindergarten-age through 12th grade, are invited to submit their masterpieces for consideration to the 24th annual John Wayne Airport Student Art Contest. All artwork should conform to the theme “Flying Saves Lives.” Contest officials give examples of air ambulances that ferry patients to the hospital; firefighting aircraft used to battle forest fires; and pilots who fly into hurricanes to gather critical information about these dangerous storms.
Entries—due by 4 p.m., Nov. 5—can be dropped off at the Orange County Department of Education office in Costa Mesa, at any county branch library, and at select city public library branches. All submissions will be displayed at the airport near the baggage carousels from Dec. 10 through Jan. 15. Winners will advance to state and international competitions. Entry forms and details can be found at ocair.com/terminal/art.
