Space 2 Create

Send Your Talent Rocketing Into Orbit

Art & Poetry Contest
June 1 - July 1, 2021

To celebrate our very own Dr. Sian Proctor’s historic journey into space as a crew member on the SpaceX flight Inspiration4, Maricopa Community Colleges is hosting the Space2Create art and poetry contest, and we’re inviting you to participate.

While on her three-day orbit in the Dragon spacecraft as part of the world’s first-ever all-civilian space flight, Dr. Proctor will recite the winning poems and display photographs of the winning artwork. Contest winners will receive a memento to commemorate their participation in this event.
