Congratulations to Our 2023 Educator Innovation Award Winners!November 27, 2023
Many teachers leverage the Ocean Awareness Contest to offer their students a sense of agency in these uncertain times and to engage their students in creative action. We are thrilled to recognize the most effective of these teachers with the 2023 Educator Innovation Awards!
The 2023 Ocean Awareness Contest, Climate Heroes in Action, challenged participants to research those who are working to solve climate change issues, and to create a piece of art, writing, or media that highlights their efforts, organizations, and/or positive impacts.
Read more about why our Educator Innovation Award winners brought the Ocean Awareness Contest into their classrooms, and how they used it to teach students about climate change – both the environmental realities and the positive stories – and to empower them to be creative stewards of our blue planet.
