The Science Without Borders Challenge engages students around the world in promoting the need to preserve, protect, and restore the world’s oceans and aquatic resources. The challenge is sponsored by the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation to get students and teachers interested in ocean conservation through various forms of art. This annual contest inspires students to be creative while learning about important ocean conservation issues. The theme for the 2019 Science Without Borders Challenge is Connected Ocean: No Barriers, No Boundaries, and No Borders, supporting the idea that although the oceans are often listed separately, they are all interconnected, forming one global ocean. For this year’s contest, students use their artistic talents to create a piece of artwork that illustrates how the ocean is connected. A panel of artists, educators, and scientists will evaluate the artwork based on quality, originality, and adherence to the theme. The challenge is open to primary and secondary school students, 11–19 years old. The artwork will be judged in two categories—11–14 year olds and 15–19 year olds—with first-, second-, and third-place prizes ($500, $350, and $200, respectively) awarded for each.
Deadline: April 22, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (ET), for submission of artwork
