Space Camp Scholarship Contest

Space Camp Scholarship Contest
Space Camp

Heimdal Science Fiction is attempting to kick off our Space Camp Contest in participating area middle schools earlier this year than in past years. Because Space Camp is not only booking camping experiences earlier this year, some of the camp dates are already filled & we want our Space Camp Contest winner to be able to enjoy his/her Space Camp trip during 2023.
We plan to get all Space Camp information into participating schools no later than September 16 with a goal of initiating the Space Camp Contest no later than September 21.

We ask that participating students write an essay, 500 words or less, Why I Want To Go To Space Camp (Space Academy, Aviation Challenge - Mach II or Cyber Camp) turn the essays in to you as our liaison & have you forward them to be received by us no later than October 28 by email or standard USPS mail. The Contest begins September 21 & ends October 21 – giving student participants a full month to write their essay & return them to you. This also gives our liaisons a full week to return the essays to Heimdal Science Fiction.

Post-pandemic prices have risen for each camping experience by $400. Heimdal Science Fiction pays for the price of the trip ($1400), registration ($50), a flight suit ($99), a mission patch ($14) & will include $300 towards travel expenses. All arrangements will be made by Heimdal Science Fiction. The only thing the winning student’s parents will be responsible for is communication with Space Camp & getting their student winner to Huntsville, AL & Space Camp & back home.
