Enter Our World Oceans Day Video Contest!

We live in the middle of the continent, hundreds of miles from the nearest coastline. Why should we care about the ocean, and what can we do to help keep our oceans clean and healthy? The St. Louis Aquarium Foundation invites classrooms and individuals to answer this important question in 60 seconds or less by creating a video and posting it on Instagram with the hashtag: #aquariumstlcontest.

Two Grand Prize winners will be selected and each will receive free admission to the Aquarium and the St. Louis Wheel (when open to the public)! Post your videos by June 3rd, 2019 to enter. For the full contest details, Click Here!
