Congratulations to all students who gave their own interpretations of ocean literacy with Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Art Contest. Winners are now posted!
Students were asked to create an original piece of artwork along with an essay that describes one or more of the Ocean Literacy Principles to raise awareness about the importance of our oceans. As residents of B.C., we are intimately linked with the Pacific Ocean and rely on it for food, transportation and climate control. If we didn’t have it, our lives would be very different.
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Art Contest was one of 20 regional contests initiated by the Coastal America Partnership, a collaboration of learning centers in the US, Mexico and Canada.
Winners from the Vancouver Aquarium’s regional contest have been entered in a national contest and those winners will be flown to Washington D.C. on World Oceans Day, June 8, to view their artwork in National Museums.
