Announcing the 2023 Science Without Borders® Challenge Semi-Finalists – Ages 15-19

Written by

We recently unveiled the semi-finalists of the 2023 Science Without Borders® Challenge for students participating in the 11-14 year-old category. Today, we are thrilled to announce the semi-finalists for the 15-19 year-old category.

The theme for this year’s international art contest was “The Sixth Extinction.” Participants were tasked with creating a piece of artwork that highlights the beauty and importance of marine species that are on the brink of extinction. The students’ submissions were exceptional, and will help to create awareness about endangered species. 

Judging the over 530 entries in this category was an arduous task for our panel of judges. After much deliberation, they selected 46 entries as semi-finalists that originate from 14 different countries. The students illustrated a diverse range of marine creatures including sea grass, fish, marine mammals, birds, crabs, and reptiles. Like with the younger semi-finalists group, students used a variety of styles, techniques, and media to portray the theme. 

Without further ado, we invite you to meet our 15-19 year old semi-finalists:
