2021 Artists

Congratulations to the 2021 Art Contest Winners and Honorable Mentions showcased below.  The artists were asked to either showcase a creative invention or to draw an Engineer or STEAM Role Model along the 2021 engineers week theme "Reimagining the Possible". The winners were selected from three categories: High School Grades 9-12, Middle Grades 6-8, and Elementary Grades K-5.  Thank you to all of our judges! 

Kayla and Zoey are winners in the digital art category. 

Kayla's piece titled ‘Engineering a Brighter Future - Project Coral Regeneration’ demonstrates her idea of an underwater ROV that can regrow coral and remove CO2 from water. Through her artwork, created in Tinkercad and Adobe Photoshop, she would like people “to care about our coral reefs and to do their part to reduce CO2 which is contributing to ocean acidification.” 

Zoey's digital art piece titled ‘A Helping Hand’ depicts a beautiful outstretched hand half human half robotic prosthetic. She hopes in the future, “ we could engineer other possibilities; we would not have to rely on transplants, but create our own solutions” to illness and injury.

Emerson and Ashlee are the winners in the traditional hand drawn art category.  

Emerson’s piece is motivated by her belief that “various fields of engineering can contribute to the development of our future society”. Her colorful hand drawn piece depicts elements of these different fields she believes will make the future brighter including: biomedical research, international cooperation, green energy, human exploration and transportation. 

Ashlee’s piece is titled ‘Beyond into the Future’. Her use of color and creativity conveys the things she thinks are important to make the future brighter including “going into space, the people of this planet, engineering, sciences, and better farming” techniques.
