This year, Bow Seat’s 10th anniversary Contest theme centered on water and its connection to climate change, health, justice, and culture. In their creative works, students addressed issues like access to safe water, drought and flooding, displacement, and food insecurity. They learned about the health and economic impacts of our increasingly polluted and overfished oceans and waterways. Many of our students beautifully demonstrated empathy and compassion towards our natural world and each other—crucial drivers of the environmental movement—by rendering their love for the Earth and its inhabitants in potent and dynamic artistic expression. Congratulations to all!
