The North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) and Immersion Learning™ – a division of Sea Research Foundation, Inc. – are calling all artists for their second annual national marine art contest, this year themed “Mariners help save our seas”. Students may submit their creations through May 7. Submissions should focus on the marine environment and the work mariners—those who work on ships—do to protect it. Each entry must be an original, two-dimensional piece done on 22-inch by 28-inch white poster board.
The art contest is open to students ages 5 to 13 in schools and at Immersion sites in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, including Boys & Girls Clubs and other after-school settings. Immersion Learning is a dynamic, hands-on science education program that provides schools and informal learning organizations with the opportunity to host interactive science experiences for students in grades 4 through 8.
