Marine Art Contest

Events - Art ContestStellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a marine protected area located between Cape Ann and Cape Cod at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay, is an ocean wilderness near an urban world filled with amazing marine life. A diversity of sea creatures reside in the sanctuary and the greater Gulf of Maine, ranging from tiny one-celled diatoms to enormous humpback whales. Students are encouraged to create artistic interpretations of these local species.

There are FIVE divisions in the contest—grades K–4, grades 5–8, grades 9–12, an open scientific illustration division (K–12), and an open computer graphics division (K–12) with a winner, second and third place selected from each division.

Notification and certificates will be sent to the participating teachers or individual students at their schools.
