On behalf of the Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs team, I am very pleased to share the 2020 class of winners of the international Ocean Awareness Contest!
The 2020 Ocean Awareness Contest, "Climate Hope: Transforming Crisis" invited middle and high school students from around the world to learn about climate change and its impact on oceans; discover or imagine solutions at local, national, or global scales; and create work that explores hope in action. More than 5,300 students from 92 countries and 49 U.S. states responded with paintings, poems, songs, documentaries, dances, animations, apps, stories, and more.
The 350+ winning pieces were selected by a team of judges comprising artists, ocean scientists, writers, filmmakers, and educators. Bow Seat awarded over $83,000 in prizes to winning participants.
