    Science without Borders Challenge is an international art competition that engages students to promote the need to preserve, protect, and restore the world's oceans and aquatic resources.

    Science without Borders Challenge was created to get students and teachers more involved and interested in ocean conservation through various forms of art. This yearly contest inspires students to be creative while using different types of media to promote public awareness of important ocean conservation issues.

    This year's theme is "Reef SuperSpecies".

    Use your imagination to create a piece of art that illustrates a made-up Reef SuperSpecies. A Reef SuperSpecies is an organism (plant or animal) that has found a way to adapt to a deadly threat facing coral reef ecosystems. You can make up an organism or base your organism off of an already existing reef organism.

    Works will be judged in two categories:

    11–14 year-olds
    15–19 year-olds

    The artwork must be 2D with a minimum size of 11" x 14" (28 cm x 36 cm) and a maximum size of 20" x 30" (51 cm x 76 cm). Acceptable media includes paint, pencil, marker, crayon, ink, and chalk. All submissions must be made by an individual artist. Group submissions are not permitted.

    There is no entry fee.
