Heal the Bay is holding a “My Perfect Ocean” contest in honor of World Oceans Day where children can win free camp registration.
The theme of this year‘s celebration is “Youth: the Next Wave of Change.” There are three age categories for this contest:
1. PreK* – 2nd graders are asked to draw their perfect ocean (*Youngest entrant age = 3 years old).
2. 3rd-5th graders are asked to describe their perfect ocean in words, one page or less, and what makes it perfect.
3. High School students will need to describe their perfect ocean, what makes it perfect and how they plan to protect it. Students will need to submit this vision in words (one page or less) AND in multi-media form (video, song, picture, etc.).
The grand prize in each category is a free paid registration in one of Heal the Bay’s Summer Science Adventures Programs (ages 3-5 = Micro Biologist, Kindergarten-5th grade students = Aquarium Science Adventures Camp, High School students = Creek Week Summer Institute).
Deadline for entering is midnight, May 25, 2012.
