Coastal America Ocean Art Contest - Winners

Last fall, the Georgia Aquarium hosted a Regional Coastal America Ocean Art Contest for grades K-College. The purpose of this Ocean Art Contest was to draw upon youth's artistic expression to convey the importance of ocean, coasts and Great Lakes. Winning artwork from each of the regional sites will advance to the national competition later in March. We are happy to annouce our regional winners and runner-ups:
