Teachers and Parents: the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) announces The Moon and Me K-12 Art Challenge!
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) is sponsoring The Moon and Me K-12 Art Challenge! Students have the chance to submit artwork that answers the question: What does the Moon mean to me?
Celebrate NASA’s return to the Moon with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) by creating a unique art project that describes what the Moon means to you and how important you feel it is to the future of human exploration.
All participants who submit artwork will receive a Moon and Me certificate. Images of all entries will be displayed in LROC’s online Lunar Art Gallery and a selection of artwork will be featured in “The Moon and Me Art Exhibit” at ASU in the fall of 2011. The first 500 participants will receive a special “Moon Pac” that contains a signed certificate, LROC sticker, magnet, and bookmark, and the official NASA LRO mission lithograph. The program will end on May 15, 2011.
