A Muskego boy is one of nine young people from around the state who won top honors in this year’s poster design contest sponsored by the Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics, in the Department of Transportation.
Paul Salsieder of Muskego placed first in the senior category (ages 14 to 17).
The top three entries, in three different age groups, will advance to the national Aviation Art Contest for judging in Washington, D.C., which includes Salsieder.
First place winners have the option of selecting a $100 art supply gift certificate or an airplane ride for two as their prize. Second and third place winners receive a $75 and $50 art supply gift certificate, respectively.
The Wisconsin winning works of art will be judged with entries from across the country in the three age groups. The first, second and third place national winners, in each age group, will receive a certificate, ribbon and framed reproduction of their artwork. In addition, they will advance to the international competition for worldwide judging in Switzerland.
