The Las Cruces Space Festival is proud to be working with the Las Cruces Public Schools (LCPS). Ahead of the Festival on April 7th-13th, LCPS ran a poster contest for elementary school students. Ten finalists were chosen by the crew at the Challenger Learning Center of Las Cruces on February 7th and they have been displayed at the LCPS Central Office on 505 S Main.
The Las Cruces Space Festival Planning Committee have chosen a winner and runner-up from the ten finalists.
We are pleased to announce that the runner-up is Columbia Elementary 1st Grade Student Nathan Franks. Nathan will be presented with his prize on Friday, March 8th.
And the winner is…
Monte Vista Elementary Student 5th Grade, Job Nava. Job’s poster, along with the other finalists, will be displayed at the Mesilla Valley Mall on April 8th-13th alongside the ‘Our Place In Space- Las Cruces’ exhibition. Job will receive a rocket kit and signed copy of ‘Miguel and Michelle Visit Spaceport America‘ by New Mexico Space Author Loretta Hall, who will be on the Plaza de Las Cruces for the Space Festival on Saturday, April 13th.
