Happy Birthday, Alaska

The state of Alaska turns 50 today and to celebrate Alaska Airlines has announced the winner of its “Paint a Plane” contest.


Sitka high school student Hannah Hamberg won the airline’s “Paint the Plane” contest with the above artwork, which will soon be seen on an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-400.   The design includes a musher, a dog sled and other state icons.

In addition to getting her artwork on the plane, Hamberg, along with finalists from each grade level, won a trip to Disneyland Resort.  You can see the artwork of all the finalists in the “Paint the Plane” contest on-line.

Which one would you have voted for?
