Earth Day is a great time to celebrate our ocean, waterways, and Great Lakes, and all of the wonderful things they have to offer. This year, we are showing our appreciation for our favorite places on Earth by announcing the winners of the Annual NOAA Marine Debris Program Art Contest! We received hundreds of 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 of the importance of being responsible stewards of the ocean, not just on Earth Day, but every day! This year’s winners will be featured in our 2021 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!
