Share your Ocean Champion story with us in a short video (2-4 minutes in length) celebrating the work of passionate ocean advocates and sharing their stories to inspire others. Nominate your class or Enviro group by the 31st March 2023 and be in to win prizes!
Here are a few ideas of things you could try with your group: Adopt a beach or waterway to keep clean. Make a mural in your classroom from rubbish you collected and tell us the story. Conduct an inquiry into what actions the class could take to reduce their overall rubbish. You could even implement your ideas into the whole school. As well as doing something good for the planet, we have some really fantastic prizes up for grabs as an extra incentive to participate. Check out the Ocean Champion Challenge page for more info!
