We are excited to announce the Surf Sweets “World Ocean Day Artwork Contest for Kids” in support of World Ocean Day on June 8, 2009.
Kids ages 5-13 can enter their color artwork that best illustrates “Why I Love the Ocean” and will have the opportunity to win framing of their artwork, tickets to their local aquarium, museum or zoo, and free Surf Sweets natural and organic candies.
We’re a company that cares about the health and well-being of our customers, and our planet. We use all natural ingredients in our candies and we also support causes that help promote environmental sustainability. In keeping with this mission, Surf Sweets is working in collaboration with The Ocean Project
on this initiative, an organization that works in partnership with more than 800 zoos, aquariums and museums to educate visitors about how they can protect and conserve the world’s ocean.
World Ocean Day
was founded to raise awareness about the world’s ocean. The concept of a “World Ocean Day” was first proposed in 1992 by the Government of Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Although not yet officially designated by the United Nations, an increasing number of countries mark June 8 as an opportunity each year to celebrate our world ocean and our personal connection to the sea. This year’s event is themed “one ocean, one climate, one future”.
