Congratulations to Year 9 pupil Elizabeth, who was selected as a semi-finalist in a recent global art competition from 1,200 qualifying pieces of artwork from 66 different countries. 

This Science Without Borders® Challenge, set by the Living Oceans Foundation, is an international contest that engages students and teachers in ocean conservation through art. 

This year, students were asked to create a piece of artwork that highlights the beauty and importance of a marine species on the brink of extinction. You can see Elizabeths’s inspiring entry below.



In the 11-14 years category, Elizabeth made it through to the semi-final along with 36 other remarkable pieces of artwork, spanning 13 countries around the world.

The Living Ocean Foundation website describes each semi-finalist:

Not only was their artwork impressive, but they also excelled in providing clear explanations in their written descriptions, detailing the reasons why these marine organisms are facing endangerment.

A huge congratulations to Elizabeth on this incredible achievement!
