Ocean Awareness Student Contest

Art and Science do mix! 

 
"From the Bow Seat" invites teachers to involve their students in the Ocean Awareness Student Contest  <http://www.fromthebowseat.org/contest.php> , whose goal is to inspire creativity and critical thinking about important issues impacting the ocean.  Each year they have a big idea and encourage students to explore this idea in any of three formats: art, essay or advocacy.  Each pillar involves both research and creativity, art and science and we know students are all the better for it. The 2014 contest will focus on Plastics Pollution in the Ocean, a topic which lends itself beautifully to collaboration across disciplines.

Although the contest is only a few years old, it has grown in submissions by 50% annually and this year had submissions from 15 states and Canada. Students can participate in the contest individually or in groups and contest winners can win up to $1500 plus an additional $1500 for their high school art or science department.
