Have you ever looked at the stars and wondered, "What would it look like if we lived in space?” For the second year, astronaut and contest visionary John Shoffner invites students and educators from across the world to submit a drawing, painting or written poetry showcasing what it would look like if we lived up there. Participants from around the globe will have the chance to showcase vivid color and curiosity as they take us on a journey into space as they envision it. Eight category representatives will receive special recognition from the International Space Station (ISS) in addition to receiving physical prints of their creation sent down from space.

Let your imagination soar! Have you ever looked at the stars and wondered what it’s like up there? We want to see your drawing, painting or written poetry showcasing what it would look like if we lived in space!
