Let's Make Ships Greener International Art Contest
Calling all artists! Kids in grades K-12 are invited to participate in an international art contest sponsored by The JASON Project, the North American Marine Environmental Protection Association (NAMEPA), and the U.S. Coast Guard. The theme of the contest is "Let's Make Ships Greener." Transporting goods by sea is more environmentally friendly than moving goods the same distance by air or over land. Yet there is always room for improvement, like using wind or biofuels for power, or using greener methods to process waste on ships. How would you make shipping cleaner and/or more energy efficient? Create an original poster with your creative ideas to answer this question, and you might win a prize!
