In partnership with LEGO co. (yes, those Legos) NASA has issued a contest. Americans in grades K-12 have an opportunity to submit names for the two rovers that will be launched later this year. Contestants must submit a short essay along with their suggestion. This, from the NASA website:

When doing research for suggested rover names, please keep in mind that space objects, missions, and spacecraft have traditionally been named after people or places from history, mythology, or fiction, or with words that convey a spirit of exploration or enterprise.

Hurry... the Name the Rovers Contest ends January 31st.
