John Wayne Airport 28th Annual Student Art Contest


John Wayne Airport has announced the winners of its 28th annual Student Art Contest, themed “Flying in the Future.” Orange County students Iris Chuan and Tyler Wu were recognized as Grand Prize winners in this year’s contest. Their artwork, along with that of other winners, is on display in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal through January 8, 2018, in the Arrival (lower) Level, adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

JWA implemented its Annual Student Art Contest in 1990 as part of the opening of the Thomas F. Riley Terminal. In 1996, the Airport began coordinating its art contest with the International Aviation Art Contest sponsored by the National Aeronautic Association, National Association of State Aviation Officials, National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration, in cooperation with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.
