This year, 2829 pupils 7 to 13 years old from around the world participated in the Skywalkers category of the Odysseus Contest. As their boundless imagination was captured by Space, they created amazing artwork, which made the task of the evaluators very difficult. After two rounds of selection we are delighted to announce the 2017 International winners of the Skywalkers category and to thank all the contestants, their teachers and families for helping make Odysseus Contest a success.
