2016 Contest Winners - Theme: Air Sports In Harmony With Nature

Every year, the South Dakota Pilots Association and the Office of Air, Rail & Transit sponsor 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 "Air Sports In Harmony With Nature". We had 104 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.
