Coast Guard Student Art Contest

Every year, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) partners with the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA), and the Inter-American Committee on Ports of the Organization of American States (CIP-OAS) to celebrate talented artists throughout the Americas in the K-12 Student Art Contest. Students that enter the contest create a poster that represents an environmental theme as identified by the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) World Maritime Day.

Below, you can find the artwork of the finalists and the two grand-prize winners from previous years.
