About the 2022 Ocean Awareness
The Funny Thing About Climate Change challenges students to learn about climate change and its impact on the ocean, and to explore new ways to communicate the urgency of the climate crisis. We are looking for innovative pieces that challenge our expectations for what climate change messaging should look like. How can you talk about climate change in a fresh way?

“Living in coastal Southeast Florida, we see firsthand the consequences of climate change and marine pollution on our delicate coral reef ecosystem. The Ocean Awareness Contest gives my students a creative and artistic outlet to not only express their frustrations with these issues but also hope for the future and possible solutions. For that, I am grateful!”
