Your artwork could fly in space!

Your artwork could fly in space! If we receive at least 100 entries, one DSU student's design on a 3 ½-inch square of paper will be flown on the International Space Station and returned embossed with a certification stating that it flew in space! All you have to do is design a mission patch for the  Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP), in which a number of DSU students are participating. See some actual NASA mission patches here, and see some designs that students at other participating schools have flown previously here. Rules: A Mission Patch must be a piece of paper NO LARGER than 3.5-inch x 3.5-inch, and its design should reflect pride in DSU and our participation in the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP). There is no restriction on the type of paper or the inks to be used. But to fly, it must be paper, not card stock or cardboard.  Patches submitted on card stock or cardboard will be (and have been) rejected. A Mission Patch can be black & white or full color. A Mission Patch can only be composed of a single sheet of 3.5-inch x 3.5-inch paper and the ink on the paper.  The design itself does not have to be square or round or any particular shape; it just has to fit on the 3½-inch square of paper. A Mission Patch cannot include multiple layers of paper glued or taped on top of one another. Deadline: May 15, 2015 Entries can be submitted in one of two ways: Send a PDF of your patch design to AND  If your design is selected as the winner, you will also need to submit your actual paper design as described in 2: Mail or deliver your paper patch design to: Dr. Matt Bobrowsky CMNST, Library, 6th Floor Delaware State University 1200 N. DuPont Highway Dover, DE  19901-2277 Deadline: May 15, 2015 For more information, contact: Dr. Matt Bobrowsky,, 302-857-7729.
