TeachWild Marine Debris Art Competition Alert 2013

See TeachWild website here
Join TeachWild and the fight against marine debris by putting your hands up and showing your support.

For this year’s World Oceans Day, TeachWild is asking all schools and community groups to participate in a national art competition. We are asking classes to create artwork in the shape of a hand using only marine debris found to tell the message. You can use the rubbish found from your local beaches, creeks, rivers or anywhere else that ultimately ends up in the oceans. The more creative you can get the better. We will also have a sustainability prize pack for the winning class (more details to follow).

To find out how you can get involved in TeachWild’s national art competition 

Please register your interest in participating in the fight against marine debris by contacting Nonnie Kamau (see below) by email for more details. Artwork will be showcased at an event in early June therefore places will be limited by registering your interest. 

Quick facts on the competition:

ü  Competition is in recognition to World Ocean’s Day on June 8.
ü  Artwork is to be made up marine debris and made into the shape of a hand
ü  Get your class to submit video questions for CSIRO scientists to answer at the event
