Patch design contest
Did you know every human mission NASA has flown since Gemini V has its own patch? Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing and become part of the mission by participating in Visit Houston’s patch design contest.
Designs should be inspired by the Apollo 11 mission patch, but should not duplicate major elements from the Apollo 11 patch. The winning entry will be featured in marketing collateral and other promotions in connection with the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing.
The submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 28.
