2014 Contest Winners - Theme: My Favorite Air Sport

Every year South Dakota Pilots Association and the Office of Air, Rail & Transit sponsors a contest in an effort to motivate and encourage young people to become more familiar with and participate in aeronautics, engineering and science.

This year's theme for the contest was "Flying Saves Lives". We had many submissions and it was difficult choosing our winners. Each person received a prize purchased by the South Dakota Pilots Association and the Office of Air, Rail & Transit and the winners got a laminated copy of their poster. Below are pictures of the winners' submissions which will also be published in our co-sponsor's newsletter, the South Dakota Pilots Association News.
