The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced the winners of its annual Marine Debris Program Art Contest.
The contest is aimed at students in grades K-8 and aims to engage them and raise awareness about the scourge and global problem of marine debris.
This year’s winning artwork will make it into the NOAA 2023 Marine Debris Calendar, which can be purchased later in the year.
