PLYMOUTH — Nine students from around the state, including a student from Plymouth, won top honors in this year’s poster design contest sponsored by the Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics.
Sophie Ana Schneider took first place in the Junior Category, for ages 6 to 9. Schneider, along with eight other students in three different age categories, will advance to the national Aviation Art Contest for judging in Washington, D.C.
First place winners have the option of selecting a $100 art supply gift certificate or an airplane ride for two as their prize. Second and third place winners receive a $75 and $50 art supply gift certificate, respectively.
The Wisconsin winning works of art will be judged with entries from across the country in the three age groups. The first, second and third place national winners in each age group will receive a certificate, ribbon and framed reproduction of their artwork. In addition, they will advance to the international competition for worldwide judging in Switzerland.
The Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics received more than 500 entries this year, which is a new record.
