The Mars 2020 Rover naming contest is here for K-12 students. There will be a semi-finalist in each state and the NASA Nebraska Space Grant will have a special recognition for Nebraska's winner. Teachers can also register to be a judge.

Students are challenged to think of a rover name and write a short essay (up to 150 words) to explain why their chosen name is the best. Entries are due Nov. 1, 2019!

Teachers and other interested adults, we need you to be contest judges. Register here:
