2013 Marine Art Contest
There were 726 entries this year from more than 60 schools and a number of home-schooled students, representing 10 states (although the majority came from Massachusetts). Artwork was judged on creativity, technique and accuracy of artwork in complying with the contest theme of "Amazing Ocean Creatures of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. Winning artwork and several of the honorable mentions have been framed and are now part of a traveling exhibit that will tour public venues starting in September and continuing throughout the 2013-2014 school year.
