  • Mission Patch Contest

    Astronaut crews design unique, personalized mission patches to represent their space flights. Components of a mission patch include elements that describe the different phases of their particular mission as well as the name of the space shuttle and the mission number. Each patch is unique in shape, color, and size. Your objective is to design your own patch. You can work on your patch as a group or individually. If you would like to include your personal names on the patch, please use first names only.

    Things to Consider:
    Imagine being part of a NASA mission. What will your mission accomplish? Will you run any experiments? If so, what type? What is your flight number?

    Entries will be judged on content and creativity.

    The top four entries will be showcased on the Space Explorers website. The winning submissions will also receive a Certificate of Achievement.

    Please keep the size of your mission patch to one side of an 8.5" X 11" piece of paper. Entries must be submitted by April 23, 2004. Include the student's name, teacher's name, school name, school address, and school phone or teacher's e-mail address. Please include a note if you would like us to send back your original entries.
