International Student Art Contest – Science without Borders® Challenge 2018
The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is excited to announce that this year’s Science without Borders® Challenge is in conjunction with International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) to celebrate the International Year of the Reef (IYOR). IYOR is a global effort to increase awareness and understanding on the values and threats to coral reefs, and to support related conservation, research, and management efforts. All around the world, nations, organizations, schools, and individuals will observe and take part in IYOR 2018 in a variety of ways. As an artist, you can too.
In celebration of IYOR, this year’s Science without Borders® Challenge takes the importance of coral reefs as its theme. Harness your artistic skills and creative vision to create a piece of art that illustrates “Why Coral Reefs Matter.” Your artwork may portray why coral reefs matter to you, your country, the world, and/or other organisms or ecosystems.
Participating means you will be an active supporter of IYOR 2018: not only will your artwork aid in creating awareness about the importance of coral reefs, it will also be displayed at various IYOR events around the world. Which, of course, makes this year’s contest an extra special one. So, get inspired. Take part in this great global initiative by applying your talents. And help make a difference!
Winners of the Science Without Borders® Challenge will be publicly announced. Prizes awarded to contestant winners are as follows:
1st Place: $500
2nd Place: $350
3rd Place: $200
The Science without Borders® Challenge was created 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 SWB Challenge is open to primary and secondary school students 11-19 years old, with scholarships of up to $500 awarded to the winning entries.
