Students’ Artwork Help Raise Awareness About Environment and Climate Change

Congratulations to eighth grader Bonnie Wang and seventh grader Juliana Li who were winners in separate environmental-themed art contests. Bonnie earned an honorable mention in a marine art contest held by the Massachusetts Marine Educators and the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. The contest is held to raise awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the diversity of marine life in Stellwagen Bank off the coast of Massachusetts. Bonnie was honored for her colorful watercolor painting of an octopus.

Juliana was one of the winners in the Cool Science art contest sponsored by the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. The contest, for students from kindergarten to twelfth grade, encourages young artists to combine science and art to create displays that illustrate concepts such as heat transfer, energy, and extreme weather. The winning artwork will appear as posters on local mass-transit in the state with the goal of educating riders on climate change. Juliana’s winning piece entitled, “Naturally Cool,” shows elephants trying to keep cool in extreme heat and the impact of human use of electronic means to stay cool.
