Name That Rover

Deadline Nears for Student Contest to Name NASA's Next Mars Rover

"NASA is issuing a last call to the nation's youth for entries in a contest to name the agency's next Mars rover. The naming contest, in partnership with Disney-Pixar's WALL-E, invites ideas from students 5 to 18 years old and enrolled in a U.S. school. The contest began two months ago. Entries will be accepted until midnight Jan. 25. Entrants should submit essays explaining why their suggested name for the rover is the right fit. In March, the public will have an opportunity to rank nine finalist names via the Internet as additional input for judges to consider. In April, NASA will announce the winning name."
