The Khaled Bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has introduced a new category in the Science Without Borders® Challenge—and you can help select the winners! 

Join us on Facebook to vote for your favorite entries to our annual student art contest. Finalists with the most likes in each category by Monday, May 23rd will receive the new “People’s Choice” award along with a $50 scholarship.

A winner will be chosen from each of the age groups, one for younger students 11-14 years old, and another for older students, 15-19 years old. All you have to do to participate is “like” your favorite images in our finalist galleries on Facebook:

Reviewing all of the amazing artwork we receive for the Science Without Borders® Challenge is one of the highlights of our year here at the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation. Right now, a panel of scientists, teachers, and artists are formally evaluating the finalists and selecting the winning entries in each age category.

This year, we invite you to join us on this journey. Help us select the winners of the “People’s Choice” award.

Our formal evaluation process will not change, and the votes for the “People’s Choice” award will not impact the judges as they evaluate which pieces of art best illustrate this year’s theme, “Ridge to Reef” conservation. However, this is your chance to let the students see how much their art is valued and seen by people around the world. Which images inspire you? Vote for the ones you want to win.

Update: Winners Announced!

Congratulations to the winners of the “People’s Choice” award in our annual student art contest, the Science Without Borders® Challenge!
