Congratulations to the winners of the "Keep the Sea Free of Debris!" Art Contest featured in the 2014 Marine Debris Calendar! This year, we received more than 600 entries from 21 states across the nation. The 13 winners were featured in our 2014 Marine Debris calendar.

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.
