The annual Science Without Borders Challenge invites secondary students to create a media project to raise awareness of the need to preserve, protect and restore the world’s oceans and aquatic resources. The theme and requirements of the competition changes each year but remain relevant to conservation of the world’s oceans. In 2013, a 1-5 minute science video addressing ‘How are we all connected to the oceans?’ was required, while in 2014, students were invited to submit two-dimensional artworks on ‘Protect Our Coral Reefs’. The competition is open to secondary school students across the globe, 14 to 19 years of age. A US$300 scholarship and iPad Mini are awarded to the 1st place prizewinner and a US$250 scholarship prize to the 2nd place prizewinner. Admission is free.
