Science Without Borders Challenge

12 days left


The Science Without Borders® Challenge is a contest to get students and teachers more involved and interested in ocean conservation through art. This annual contest inspires students to be creative while promoting public awareness of the need to preserve, protect, and restore the world’s oceans and aquatic resources, contributing to the overarching goals of the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation.

The Foundation is a US based, non-profit environmental science organization. The Foundation was established to protect and restore the world’s oceans through scientific research, outreach, and education.

The founder, His Royal Highness Prince Khaled bin Sultan of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, understands the challenges of conserving Earth’s coral reefs across oceans and political boundaries, and recognizes that collaboration is vital to ocean conservation. Inspired by the working approach of Medecins Sans Frontiers, Prince Khaled proposed that Science Without Borders® be the motto and the philosophy of the Foundation

The theme for this year’s Science without Borders® Challenge is “Take Action: Conserve Coral Reefs.”


This international art competition is open to all students 11-19 years old. Students must be enrolled in primary or secondary school, or the home school equivalent. College and university students are not eligible for this contest.

Work will be judged in two categories, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes awarded for each: • 11 – 14 year-olds • 15 – 19 year-olds
