The California Coastal Commission invites California students in kindergarten through 12th grade to submit artwork or poetry with a California coastal or marine theme to the annual Coastal Art & Poetry Contest.

Up to ten winners will be selected to win $100 gift certificates to an art supply or book store, and each winner's sponsoring teacher will receive a $50 gift certificate for educational supplies.

Students may have their work featured on Commission web pages and materials, and winning entries will be exhibited at public venues throughout the state.

Entries must be postmarked by January 31, 2014 to be eligible for the upcoming contest.
