Belize National Marine Litter Art and Innovation Contests

The Belize Marine Litter Art Contest seeks to encourage children and youth to think about how marine litter issues impact the environment around them and what they can do to tackle this pollution in everyday life. The target audience includes young artists in primary and high school (ages 6-17). The art contest is an outlet for this target audience to unleash their creativity through various art mediums, communicating to their peers and a wider audience, why the marine environment is important, how marine litter affects the healthy communities and environments, and innovative ways to address this major problem.
Any individual between the ages of 6-17 can apply.
