Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation invites applications for the Science Without BordersÂ® Challenge for international students worldwide in 2021.
TheÂ Science Without BordersÂ® ChallengeÂ is an international art contest thatÂ engages students to promote the need to preserve, protect, and restore the worldâ€™s oceans and aquatic resources.
TheÂ Science Without BordersÂ® ChallengeÂ was created to get students and teachers interested in ocean conservation through various forms of art. This annual contest inspires students to be creative while learning about important ocean science and conservation issues.
The theme for this yearâ€™sÂ Science Without BordersÂ® ChallengeÂ isÂ â€œTake Action: Conserve Coral Reefs.â€ Throughout the world, coral reefs are rapidly declining and threatened by a variety of factorsâ€”both natural and man-made. If nothing is done to save them, many coral reefs will no longer exist as functioning ecosystems by the end of the century. For this yearâ€™s contest, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is asking students to use their artistic talents to create a piece of art that illustrates one or more of the different actions that can be taken to preserve coral reefs.
- This international art competition is open to all students 11-19 years old.
- Students must be enrolled in primary or secondary school, or the home school equivalent. College and university students are not eligible for this contest.
Work will be judged in two categories, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes awarded for each:
- 11 â€“ 14 year-olds
- 15 â€“ 19 year-olds
