Art Contest 2016 For Student: Ocean Awareness Student Contest

Art Contest 2016 For Student: Ocean Awareness Student Contest Organized by From the Bow Seat. This year’s contest asks you to explore the theme “Making Meaning out of Plastic Pollution”. It challenges you to research, explore, interpret, and say something meaningful about the connections between human activities and the health of our oceans.

Did you know that plastics account for 80% of all ocean pollution? This is one of the most pressing challenges facing the ocean. Plastics pose a huge threat to the ocean ecosystem because they do not biodegrade. Instead, they continue to break into smaller and smaller pieces, which litter the ocean and its beaches.
