We received so many creative entries from all over the world this month that it was difficult for the judges to select the winner and the four runners-up.

Our first runners-up are Tamir and Mohammed from Canada, who made this nice model showing the sky and its stars, the Earth, a launcher and an astronaut.

We were happy to see that many teachers took this competition as an opportunity to introduce space to their students. Some of the best artwork we received was done in the classroom! In fact, our next three runners-up are all students from different schools in Europe.
A class of 4 and 5 year-olds from Italy sent us a beautiful model of the International Space Station they made with recyclable material, as well as astronauts and launchers going to space!

Another beautiful project was sent to us by a kindergarten class from Czech Republic, who made a spectacular launcher with the various astronauts attached to it.
