Mission Patch design competition

Enter the Mission Patch Design Competition.

For the ESERO-UK Mission Patch design competition, children must design a patch for their team or school that are taking part in Mission X: Train Like An Astronaut, in 2018. Teams must have signed up here to take part.

For every space flight, the crew design their own mission patch. The patch normally incorporates the names of the astronauts, something about the mission itself and details about the space vehicle and mission number.

Each team can submit a maximum of five mission patch designs for consideration by the judging panel. The winning design will receive a signed copy of ESA astronaut Tim Peake’s book, Ask An Astronaut.
