At long last, we are pleased to announce the winners of the Annual NOAA Marine Debris Program Art Contest! This year’s art contest has been unlike any other, and it was made possible by the many adaptations of our young artists and staff. This was the first year we accepted digital entries, and we are very grateful for the flexibility of all the families and educators who participated. We received many colorful, fun, and informative entries from around the country, and although we wish we could showcase them all, we are excited to share the winners of this year’s contest with you.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program hosts this annual art contest to engage students in grades K-8 across the United States and territories in raising awareness about marine debris and using the power of art to express meaningful messages. The winning artwork is featured in a calendar, which will help to remind us every day of the importance of being responsible stewards of the ocean. This year’s winners will be featured in our 2022 calendar, which will be available later this year.

Thank you to all the students and schools that participated in this year’s contest. This year especially, we appreciate your art and care for our ocean and Great Lakes. Congratulations to all of our winners!
