Attention Schools!!
Would your school like to participate in a spacewalk??
Here is an outstanding opportunity!!


In the fall of 2005, a Russian spacesuit is expected to be deployed from 
the International Space Station.  This deployment is expected to occur 
during a spacewalk currently planned in mid-September.  Once deployed, the 
spacesuit will orbit the Earth for several weeks until it burns up as it 
enters the Earth's atmosphere.

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) team has 
received permission to include a special compact disk on-board this 
spacesuit with school artwork included.  As a result, participating schools 
will have an opportunity to "fly" their artwork as part of the spacewalk.

To participate, schools should develop a 1 page piece of artwork that 
uniquely represents your school.  This could be an artist's representation 
of the school, a list of student names, student signatures, a school 
science project summary or a school mission patch.  This artwork should be 
primarily developed by the students.  The goal is for you to use your 
imagination and engage your students in the development of the artwork.

The page, as delivered, should not exceed 8.5x11 inches ( 216x279 mm) so 
that it can be easily scanned onto the compact disk.  Schools can also take 
a digital photograph of their art work and send this in.  If you elect to 
take a digital photograph, we ask that this be in jpg format and not exceed 
2 megs in size.  No other formats can be accepted.

Delivery Specifics:

All entries need to be received prior to June 15 2005 to be included on the 
compact disk.  The disk will be delivered to Russia in late June, flown to 
the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and launched on the 19P Progress 
vehicle currently planned for August 2005.

8.5x11 inch page artwork can be mailed to the following address:

                                     850 Sligo Ave.

opportunity to school students around the world!!
