Elementary, middle and high school teachers and their students are encouraged to participate in the 2019 Marine Art Contest sponsored by the Massachusetts Marine Educators.
Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a marine protected area located between Cape Ann and Cape Cod at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay, is an ocean wilderness near an urban world filled with amazing marine life. A diversity of sea creatures reside in the sanctuary and the greater Gulf of Maine, ranging from tiny one-celled diatoms to enormous humpback whales. Students are encouraged to create artistic interpretations of these local species.
There are 5 divisions in the contest with a winner, second and third place selected from each division. Winning entries will be posted on the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuarywebsite, as well as used by the Sanctuary and MME in their outreach programs. Notification and certificates will be sent to the participating teachers or individual students at their schools. For full contest details, download the Rules & Entry Form PDF.
