The NOAA Marine Debris Program is excited to announce the winners of the sixth annual Ohio Marine Debris Challenge!

This contest is open every year to students in grades 6-12 who are enrolled in recognized public, private, and home schools in Ohio’s Lake Erie coastal communities. This year, middle and high school students completed lessons and created artwork to raise awareness about the global problem of marine debris, especially in the Great Lakes. Students were challenged to create original artwork using repurposed trash that showcased Cedar Point Amusement Park’s 150th Anniversary.


Congratulations to the winning teams!

This year’s winners include:

  • First Place Team - Perkins High School (Teacher: Ashlie Gowitzka): Ava L., Nelia N., Madison S., Elizabeth Z.
  • Second Place Team - Perkins High School (Teacher: Ashlie Gowitzka): Kaden C., Anne P., Madalyn T., Will W.
  • Third Place Team - Perkins High School (Teacher: Ashlie Gowitzka): Elly B., Greta G., Sophia M., Emily M.

This contest is in partnership with Ohio Sea Grant, The Ohio State University Stone Laboratory, Ohio Congressional District 9 (Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur), and Cedar Point Amusement Park.

Congratulations to the Winners of the Sixth Ohio Marine Debris Challenge!
