The Fourth Graders were given the option to enter an art contest held by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, called the 2017 Minnesota Aviation Art Contest. The theme for the year was “Beyond the Clouds,” and Music Teacher, Kim Jacobson, thought that it tied in with the theme of the 4th Grade Music Program this year. Their program is about the story of a B17 pilot and his crew that jumped out in parachutes when their plane was shot down.
There were 246 entries throughout the state and only 9 winners were chosen. Our very own Elsa Brandvold took home 3rd place in her age group.
Winners in each age category will receive certificates for a 30-minute introductory flight at their local airport.
The annual art contest helps students learn about aviation through designing art based on a theme. Check out all of the 2017 winners by clicking the button below.
