North to Alaska: Paint an Alaska Airlines Plane

Alaska is turning 50 in 2009 and Alaska Airlines is getting ready to celebrate by inviting kids who live in the 49th state to enter artwork for a “Paint the Plane” contest.

Students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade (including public, private and home schools) can enter. The student with the winning design, as well as a finalist from each grade level, will get a trip for four to Disneyland Resort.

The contest deadline is October 18th. But even if you’re not a kid in Alaska, you might still have fun downloading one of the three blank plane templates playing around with a design.
