2021 marks our 10th annual Ocean Awareness Contest and 10 years of inspiring young ocean caretakers through creative expression. We’ve come a long way since our President Linda Cabot founded Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs a decade ago. From a documentary about the Gulf of Maine to a global movement of young artists creating a culture of care for our oceans—none of this would be possible without our community of students, educators, parents, partners, and supporters. Join us in celebrating all that we have created together!
In this interactive timeline, you can learn more about our program history and milestones, meet some of our award-winning student artists from around the globe, and explore special projects and campaigns we’ve been involved with over the years:
