We are pleased to announce the winners of the Annual NOAA Marine Debris Program Art Contest! 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 2023 calendar, which will be available later this year.
Thank you to all the students and schools that participated in this year’s contest. We appreciate your art and care for our ocean and Great Lakes. Congratulations to all of our winners!
