The Last Coral Reef by Selena Yang, Age 16, United StatesANNAPOLIS, MD, USA – The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) are proud to announce the winners of the 2018 Science Without Borders® Challenge, an international student art competition that highlights important ocean conservation issues. The theme for this year’s challenge was “Why Coral Reefs Matter.” The theme was chosen to highlight the importance of coral reefs as part of this year’s International Year of the Reef (IYOR) celebrations. The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation received a record number of entries for this year’s competition; students from 38 different countries submitted over 600 pieces of art for the 2018 Science Without Borders® Challenge. “The artwork was spectacular. I could tell a lot of it was very personal to the artist, and many portrayed
a deeper meaning through creative uses of symbolism,” says Amy Heemsoth, Director of Education at the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation. She continued, “The students poured their hearts out in into their work, creating stunning imagery that evoked many different emotions in the viewer.” Selena Yang, 16, a student at Martin Luther King High School in Riverside, California, took first place in the high school category.
