Coastal Poetry and Art contest for Ca. children

By encouraging youth to reflect on the beauty and spirit of California's beaches and ocean, we hope to inspire a greater sense of stewardship for these natural places. A population that cares about the coast is more likely to work to conserve and protect it.

All California residents in kindergarten through 12th grades are invited to participate. There are four categories for awards in both art and poetry: K-3rd, 4th-6th, 7th-9th, and 10th-12th grade.
Entries must have a California coastal or California marine theme. (For help with California species, click here.) Poetry and artwork must be original. Art should be no larger than 11 inches by 17 inches. Acceptable art media are paint, pencil, markers, ink, crayon, chalk or pastel (fixed), and collage. Three-dimensional pieces, computer printouts, or photocopies are not eligible. All entries must include a completed contest Entry Form.
Entries must be postmarked by January 31, 2009.

Please check out the website for more details.
