The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is pleased to announce the finalists of the 2020 Science Without Borders® Challenge, our annual student art competition. This year we asked students to illustrate things people can do to help save coral reefs–and boy did they deliver!
The foundation received more entries to this year’s competition than ever before. Nearly 700 students from 43 countries sent in artwork, so picking the finalists was a difficult decision. Ultimately, finalists were chosen based on how well the artwork exemplified this year’s theme, the quality of the artwork, and the creativity and originality of their artwork.
We hope you will be as impressed with the submissions we received as we were. Without further ado, here are the finalists of the 2020 Science Without Borders® Challenge:
