Comet competition winners selected

22 March 2017
We are pleased to announce that the winner of our Comets competition is 9 year-old Sergey from Finland! Congratulations, Sergey! You will soon be receiving a special prize from ESA.
Sergey’s artwork was original and impressive. He first made his drawing with a pencil on a wooden plate. Then he burned the contours of the picture using a special device. Finally, the resulting wooden picture was coloured with paints and glitter, giving us a beautiful piece of artwork!
Tymur (9), Ukraine
The runners-up are Tymur, 9, from Ukraine, Andrei, 12, from Romania, Viara, 7, from Bulgaria, and last but not least, Zareen, 10, from Bangladesh!
