The Science Without Borders Challenge is an international art contest that engages students to promote the need to preserve, protect, and restore the world's oceans and aquatic resources.

The Science Without Borders Challenge was created to get students and teachers interested in ocean conservation through various forms of art. This annual contest inspires students to be creative while learning about important ocean science and conservation issues. The Challenge is open to primary and secondary school students 11-19 years old, with scholarships of up to $500 awarded to the winning entries.

The theme for this year's Science Without Borders Challenge is "Take Action: Conserve Coral Reefs." Throughout the world, coral reefs are rapidly declining and threatened by a variety of factorsboth natural and man-made. If nothing is done to save them, many coral reefs will no longer exist as functioning ecosystems by the end of the century. For this year's contest, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is asking students to use their artistic talents to create a piece of art that illustrates one or more of the different actions that can be taken to preserve coral reefs.

Winners of the Science Without Borders Challenge will be publicly announced.
Prizes awarded to contestant winners are as follows: 1st Place: $500, 2nd Place: $350, 3rd Place: $200
