World Oceans Day Artwork Contest for Kids
In anticipation of the upcoming World Oceans Day on June 8, we are collaborating with Surf Sweets, a natural and organic candy brand, on a World Oceans Day Artwork Contest for Kids. Kids ages 5-13 can enter their drawings that best illustrate “Why I Love the Ocean.”
This contest will be a valuable and fun way for kids to increase their personal connection with the ocean, to increase awareness of World Oceans Day among parents and families, and to celebrate this annual event.
Consumer entry forms and bookmarks include Action Tips for protection of our world’s ocean, and kids will have the opportunity to win framing of their artwork, Surf Sweets organic and natural candies, and tickets to their local zoo, aquarium, museum (ZAM), among other prizes.
For Ocean Project Partners, Surf Sweets is offering 5% off for orders shipped prior to World Oceans Day, and an additional 5% will be donated back to The Ocean Project.
For more information about the contest or product orders, contact Surf Sweets at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Surf Sweets website.
