OKLAHOMA CITY — The deadline to enter Oklahoma's 2014 International Aviation Art Contest is fast approaching.
The deadline for students to send in their artwork and entry forms is Jan. 24.
Entries must be sent to the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission in Oklahoma City. The commission recently extended the contest entry deadline by one week due to winter weather last month that forced many school districts to close for several days.
Oklahoma artists, from ages 6-17, are invited to participate in the art contest. The theme for the 2014 contest is "Flying Saves Lives."
Contest organizers are encouraging participants to think of ways that flying saves lives, which they can in turn incorporate into their artwork. Artwork will be judged in three age classes based on originality, design and usage of the contest's theme.
