In celebration of APRSAF-18, and the 50th Anniversary of Human Space Flight, students between the age of 8 and 11 are invited to design a poster based on the theme:

“The next 50 years in Space”

In December 2011, the Asia Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) will be held in Singapore. This event will be co-hosted by the Singapore Space and Technology Association, the Centre for Remote Imaging Sensing and Processing and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and promotes collaboration between the regions space agencies. To support this objective, and promote awareness of the benefits of space technology, the APRSAF Space Education and Awareness Working Group established a Poster Design Competition for students aged 8 to 11 years, a Water Rocket Event for students aged 12 to 16 years, and a series of Educator Workshops.

A Power Point Presentation has been prepared to assist teachers to introduce the topic and stimulate discussion. This Power Point Presentation is in .pdf format to ensure it will run on any computer.

Three posters will be selected to represent Australia in the final based on the following criteria:

- How well the poster addresses the theme
- Creativity
- Originality
- Technical skill relative to age

* posters must be received by VSSEC no later than Monday 10th October 2011 *

The three Australian winners will receive a certificate, a FREE VSSEC Video Conference program for their class, and have their poster displayed with the finalists from the other Asia-Pacific countries at APRSAF-18 in Singapore, 6th – 9th Dec 2011. The final posters will be judged by members of the APRSAF Space Education and Awareness Working Group and registered participants of APRSAF-18. All finalists will receive a certificate of participation and prizes will be awarded for the three posters that receive the greatest number of votes.
