The 2018 Youth Making Ripples Film Festival will take place on January 25, 2018 in Mote Marine Laboratory's WAVE Center. A portion of this FREE screening will focus specifically on plastic pollution and feature Motes new exhibit called, "Sea Debris: Awareness through Art." Check back soon for film titles!
Youth Making Ripples Film Competition is an opportunity for K-12 students (< 18 years of age) to use their creative talents and serve as a voice for our oceans. We encourage elementary, middle and high school students to create their own marine related film on a topic of their interest. All submission must be less than 5 minutes. The message of your film can focus on an interesting marine topic, a specific marine related problem or issue, or a call to action for conservation.
