Ready, set, and draw! Grab your kids, art supplies, and spread the word about marine debris, of course!
The NOAA Marine Debris Program’s annual Art Contest for grades K-8 is around the corner. Students can submit artwork from October 20th through November 30th. 

This year, show the NOAA Marine Debris Program:

  • How marine debris impacts the oceans and the Great Lakes.
  • What you are doing to help prevent marine debris.

To help raise marine debris awareness year-round, we will feature contest winners in our 2017 Marine Debris Calendar to remind everyone that we can solve the marine debris problem every day!
