Student Artwork Contest

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) has been partnered with Carl Sandburg Middle School in Alexandria, Virginia since 1990 (for more information about MWAA and the community, click here!). Since the 2004-2005 school year, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport has sponsored an annual energy conservation poster contest! Each year, the contest’s winning entries are displayed at Reagan National to remind employees to save energy whenever possible!

Art is especially important to MWAA. If you walk around the terminals at Reagan National you will see beautiful mosaic medallions (big, round pieces of art made of little tiles) on the floor, beautiful glass artwork on the windows and other artwork on the walls.  To learn more about this, click on this link.

Conservation of energy and natural resources is also important to MWAA. As a big airport, Reagan National uses lots of energy each year to operate. Good conservation practices not only save money; they save the environment! To learn more about protecting the environment, visit this neat site: http://www.epa.gov/kids/
