This calendar is published by the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) Space Education Working Group, which encourages the use of space materials to enhance education for young people and aims to stimulate intellectual curiosity and passion of young people through their involvement in space activities.

APRSAF Space Education Working Group proudly presents the creative artwork of children in Asia and the Pacific.

You are welcome to produce copies of this calendar and distribute them to parties who may be interested in them.

The theme of the twenty-fourth APRSAF Poster Contest will be “United Through Space”.
