My Dream to Fly: 2001 International Aviation Art Contest

Selected Youth Artwork from Pennsylvania

Youth Art Gallery between Terminals D and E
May 2001 – October 2001

The annual International Aviation Art Contest was established to encourage student interest in aviation and the exploration of aeronautics, engineering, and science. Thousands of children and teenagers ages 6-17 were invited to create artwork based on this year’s theme: “My Dream to Fly.”

Each year, the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), a nonprofit organization founded to further aeronautical and astronautical activities worldwide, invites students from more than 100 member nations to participate in the art contest. Entries are judged in 3 age groups within each state. Award winning state entries continue on to the national competition and, ultimately, international judging at FAI headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

This exhibition features selected artwork by students from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Special thanks to the Bureau of Aviation at the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Harrisburg, and sponsors of the contest including the National Aeronautic Association, National Association of State Aviation Officials, and the Federal Aviation Administration.
