The Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the SGAC Near Earth Object (NEO) Project Group in collaboration with the Minor Planet Center (MPC) are excited to offer you the opportunity to name an asteroid! Entering is easy: Send them your entry in 50 words or fewer on what you would name an asteroid and why.
Two competitions will run, one for entrants under 18, and one for entrants over 18, and the two winners will be announced around the end of December.
The naming contest is open to anyone. Submit your entry by November 30.
