The California Coastal Commission is now accepting entries from all California students (kindergarten through 12th grade) to the 2013 California Coastal Art & Poetry Contest.
All entries, either art or poetry, must have a California coastal or marine theme.
The contest encourages youth to reflect on the beauty and spirit of the coastline and the ocean to inspire a sense of stewardship for natural places.
All entries must be postmarked by Jan. 31, 2013.
