Contest with prizes of up to $1,500 for USA, Canada, and International students to create projects that teach about
climate change and its effects on oceans. The purpose of the contest is to engage students aged 11-18 to creatively represent climate change issues. Students may use techniques including irony, parody, satire, and humor in their creations.
The 11th annual Ocean Awareness Contest is a platform for young people to learn about environmental issues through art-making and creative communication, explore their relationship to a changing world, and become advocates for positive change.

The Foundation is looking for innovative pieces that challenge expectations for what climate change messaging should look like. How can you talk about climate change in a fresh way? How can you capture attention without sacrificing your message?
