Annual Marine Debris Art Contest
People of all ages can connect with and understand the marine debris problem, and educating them is a crucial step toward solving it. To reach the nation’s kids, the NOAA Marine Debris Program sponsors an annual nationwide art contest in an effort to get them thinking about how they can keep debris out of the ocean. This year, the MDP asked kindergarten through 8th grade students to create their "vision" of marine debris. Help children discover the impacts of entanglement and litter with the MDP’s annual art contest. Our contest typically opens in October of each year and closes in November.
