Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) and Science Initiative for Environmental Conservation and Education (SCIENCE) are pleased and excited to announce the winners of their Waste to Art competition held under the theme “Amazing Seabirds: Our Birds, Our Islands, Our Future.”
The contest was held on islands throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada within four categories: Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Tertiary Schools and Adults. This contest was an opportunity for students and the general public to bring attention to the threat of marine litter to wildlife and showcase their creativity and knowledge about seabirds; at the same time, they contributed to a cleaner and healthier environment by removing plastics and other waste material from beaches and seabird habitats.
26 online entries were judged by a panel of environmentalists, media personnel and professional artists. Cash prizes will be awarded to the 2 top entries in each category. All participants will be awarded a Certificate of Participation and a consolation prize.
