"Catch a Star" is a competition in which school students write articles or create artwork about their chosen astronomical topics.

"Catch a Star", an international competition for school students organised by ESO - the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere - and the European Association for Astronomy Education, returns for its sixth year. Students from all over the world are welcome to take part.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 29 February 2008, at 17:00h Central European Time. This applies to electronic uploads and to the postmark on printed entries which are submitted by mail.
