About the contest:
Each year, the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA), the United States Coast Guard (USCG), and the Inter-American Committee on Ports of the Organization of American States (CIP-OAS) invite students in grades K-12 throughout the Americas to create a poster on a theme identified by the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) World Maritime Day and related to the marine environment.
