In 2013, the Foundation held its first Science without Borders® Challenge competition.  High school students around the world were asked to answer the question, how are we all connected to the oceans?  Students were asked to submit a 1-5 minute science video presentation that could include any combination of interviews, comic storyboards, photography, and original footage to answer the challenge question. The submission conveyed a connection between everyday life and our oceans that could serve as a public service announcement to other students, teachers, parents, and the general public.

The 2013 winning Challenge science video is titled, “How Tennessee Affects the Oceans?” The film makers, Alexis Braden, Martin Lampkin, Jr., and Nicholas Wesley attend Hume Fogg High School in Nashville, TN.
