Submit artwork to Concierge’s Desk in Lobby

WHY: OdySea Aquarium is encouraging young artists to join them for a “Party for the Planet” in partnership with the Association of Zoos and Aquarium (AZA) and submit an awesome art piece inclusive of all wildlife! Through this unique opportunity, kids will learn about various animal species as well as conservation as they create a work of art that represents a land or sea animal with recycled materials.
For the past three years, the Conservation Art Challenge has drawn hundreds of young artists from across the Valley who submit amazing and diverse animal masterpieces of all shapes and sizes!
“Getting involved in this challenge is a fantastic educational opportunity that will allow children to celebrate the earth’s biodiversity,” said Jess Tammen, Manager of Dive Operations and Conservation. “Researching the animals and deciding what to create connects them with nature to become stewards of conservation and the environment.”
To participate, kids must take these steps:
- Create a land or sea animal art piece out of recycled materials.
- Fill out the printable submission form available on the OdySea Aquarium website at: https://www.odyseaaquarium.com/art-challenge/
- Bring completed paperwork + artwork to the OdySea Aquarium Aqua Lobby Concierge’s Desk and earn one (1) Child Admission Ticket (for children ages12 and under).
The OdySea Aquarium Conservation Committee comprised of team members from all areas of the Aquarium will judge the artwork and award prizes to the best submissions. Works of art will rotate being on display on the floor of the Aquarium for ALL guests to admire on their visit to OdySea Aquarium!
MEDIA: Enthusiastic spokespeople are available for interviews from the OdySea Aquarium Conservation Committee about this challenge. Further press information will be sent out when the Challenge winners are chosen too!
