These days, if you're an elementary student who draws well, your paintings don't just get tacked up on the refrigerator at home.  

On Saturday, Korean Air unveiled a Boeing 747-400 that had been wrapped in a brightly colored children's drawing which had won first place in the airline's third "Draw Your Own Plane" contest for elementary children. 

As part of the 2010-2012 Visit Korea campaign, the theme for this year's contest was "The beautiful Korea you would like to introduce to foreign friends." 

In addition to getting a plane wrapped in their work, Dorim Elementary School students Shin-yoo and Shin-ji won also won a trip to the Boeing headquarters in Seattle. 

Starting with the domestic Gimpo-Busan route, the pretty plane will also be making international rounds.
