Student Art Contest

Woods Hole Sea Grant invites MA students in grades K-12 to participate in our Dune Sign Student Art Contest.

We will use the artwork from the first place winners in grade divisions K-4, 5-8, and 9-12 on our signs at local Cape and Southeastern MA beaches to educate visitors about coastal dunes, their fragility, and need for protection from foot traffic. First, second, and third place winners in each category will also receive Amazon gift cards. Contest rules and details as well as background information to learn more about the importance of coastal dunes can be found on our website.

We encourage teachers to use the background material as well as sample classroom lessons on dunes and dune grass to educate their students while encouraging them to turn their knowledge into art. The contest ends March 7th.
