Soyuz TMA-13 spaceflight participant Richard Garriott, son of Skylab and space shuttle astronaut Owen Garriott, has partnered with the Challenger Center for Space Science Education to run several joint educational activities leading up to and through his mission to the International Space Station.

Note in the following release that you need not be a student to submit a design.
Join The Challenger Center Student Art Contest Supporting Richard Garriott's Space Flight

Richard Garriott is a preeminent game developer and son of NASA Skylab Astronaut Owen Garriott. As the next civilian to fly into space, Richard plans to engage with students, teachers and the 50 Challenger Learning Centers around the world through interactive activities before, during and after his flight currently scheduled for lift-off to the International Space Station on October 12, 2008.

Space exploration encompasses all facets of the human experience including our need for creative expression. Students of all ages are encouraged to submit their design for a student patch or t-shirt that celebrates the educational aspect of Richard Garriottís upcoming flight. The student design should symbolize the adventure and discovery of spaceflight from the studentís point of view. The winning student design may appear on both a patch and a t-shirt. Challenger Center for Space Science Education plans to post some of the submitted studentís designs on their national website, and will award the winner with a certificate and t-shirt with his/her design later this year. The design may even get flown into space!

This student activity is open to the general public, visit the Challenger Center website to submit your design. Deadline is April 18th for submissions.

SPACE.com: Student Artists Wanted for Space Tourist Emblem
The clock is ticking for young artists hoping to draw up an emblem for the next paying tourist to visit the International Space Station (ISS).

American computer game developer Richard Garriott, a multimillionaire training to launch toward the space station this fall, is looking for an original design that could serve as a student mission patch or t-shirt in a contest organized by the Challenger Center for Space Science Education.

Launched in late March, the art competition is open to students of all ages across the U.S. to submit a design that reflects the "the adventure and discovery of spaceflight," center officials said in a statement, adding that final entries are due by April 18. While submissions will be collected into a design gallery, the winning emblem could ultimately fly in space, they added.

Challenger Center release
Challenger Center Student Design Selected to Represent Educational Mission

This spring Challenger Center for Space Science Education invited students to use their creativity to design an original piece of art for a student mission patch for private space explorer, Richard Garriott. As the next civilian to fly to space, Richard plans to engage students around the world with his flight to the International Space Station planned for October 2008.

The design was intended to symbolize the adventure and discovery of spaceflight. The winning design by Sarah Nakata, a student from the Brownsburg Challenger Center in Indiana, will appear on a special t-shirt that Richard will fly into space. All of the student entries appear on the Challenger Center website.

Space exploration encompasses all facets of the human experience including our need for creative expression. Unlocking studentsí creativity is the beginning of a journey that inspires both ingenuity and imagination. Creativity inspired great minds to imagine space exploration; human ingenuity and innovation made it a reality. An artist in his own right, Richard plans to create works of art during his mission that reflect both the emotional experience of being in space and the physical effects of zero gravity.

Challenger Center for Space Science Education was founded in 1986 by the families of the astronauts of the space shuttle Challenger 51-L mission. It is dedicated to the educational spirit of that mission and impacts over 300,000 students and 25,000 teachers each year. Challenger Learning Center programs at 50 centers around the world continue the crew's mission of engaging teachers and students in science, mathematics, engineering and technology.

I think it shows the effect of a small rise in global sea levels. Nice patch though.

Per my interview yesterday with Richard Garriott:
I am taking a sheet of all those patches, all of the submissions are going to go with me into space but that [winning] one in particular, we're actually having made into patches and I'll be taking at least one of those with me to space and of course, will have a few more to share around with the students, for example, [the student] who created it.
