World Oceans Day Artwork for Kids Contest Winners

August 5, 2009


Kids from across the country helped Surf Sweets celebrate this year’s first official World Oceans Day (June 8, 2009) by sharing their artwork themed “Why I Love the Ocean.” The artwork we received was amazing! We hope that everyone who participated had fun learning about the importance of our world’s oceans.

We’d especially like to thank Cheryl and her team at the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago for judging our contest.

The first prize winners from each age group will receive a year’s supply of Surf Sweets, 4 tickets to their local zoo, aquarium or museum and their artwork framed. The second prize and third prize winners also receive a Surf Sweets gift basket and tickets to their local zoo, aquarium or museum.

Congratulations to our winners & thank you to everyone who participated!
