Love to draw? Have a passion for the ocean? Want to be a part of history in the making? (OK, kidding just a bit on that one, but this really is BIG and COOL!)

If you answered YES to any or all of the above, we have the perfect contest for you! Here’s your chance to make your mark and be a part of what will be the BEST, MOST FABULOUS, SO BEAUTIFUL IT’LL BE A COLLECTOR’S ITEM FOR YEARS TO COME (copies will be sold on Ebay years from now!) …OK, exaggerating just a smidge, but you get the picture – 2011 Marine Debris Planner/Calendar!


So, here’s the 4-1-1: The NOAA Marine Debris Program would like to know how marine debris impacts you and what you are doing about it. All students in grades K-4 and 5-8 from all U.S. states and territories–recognized public, private, and home schools are eligible to participate. Each entry must be composed of a piece of artwork and a description (on entry form). All must meet the requirements stated on the webpage below. Students are highly encouraged to check out the rest of the NOAA Marine Debris Program website for information about marine debris.

So, that said, join us this Earth Day and help “Keep the Sea Free of Debris!”
