“COPING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE: SANDWATCH LEADING THE WAY”
See how Sandwatchers are helping with climate change adaptation by keeping beaches and coastal areas healthy and strong. The competition was open to Sandwatch schools, youth and communities groups around the world.
Almost two dozen entries were submitted from teams all over the world with winners chosen in age categories (primary/high school), as well as for creativity and originality. $6,000 US in prize money was awarded the best eight (8) entries. Now that so many Sandwatch Teams know how to create and present their own videos, who knows what kinds of creative ways they will come up with in the future. We cant wait to find out!
