Bow Seat's annual Ocean Awareness Contest invites students ages 11-18 to create visual art, writing, film, and music that explores the impacts of climate change on the ocean. In addition to our general Contest awards, we have special scholarship opportunities for Massachusetts students:
- $250 Hometown Awards for Boston residents
- All Massachusetts participants will be eligible for $250 Bay State Awards
We also have awards for educators who teach the Ocean Awareness Contest this year, including a Bay State Educator Award ($750 prize + $500 classroom grant).
Finally, Bow Seat's Resource Studio provides curated resources for creative exploration and inquiry into issues related to the oceans and climate change, including articles, primary literature, lesson plans, quizzes, and inspirational media.
