Middle School Students

Design your own “mission patch” showing how the process of evolution on Earth may parallel the evolution of the solar system. Explain your design with a poem or short essay.

High School students

The Lucy Spacecraft will stay in orbit around the Sun for millions of years. Create a message in the form of original artwork (drawing, paintings, digital images, photographs, photographs of sculptures—be creative as you wish!) to future humans who may someday find it, highlighting humankind’s drive to explore, discover, and understand our origins—on Earth and in the Solar System.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS EXTENDED UNTIL FRIDAY, APRIL 16!
