Awards Competition for
Marine Science Projects

Submit Now

NAMEPA and the American Salvage Association (ASA) are once again collaborating on a Science Fair aimed at high school and undergraduate students to promote marine science.  The winners of each category will be invited to receive their awards at NAMEPA's conference in New York on October 27th. 
Do you know a student who demonstrated a passion in the Marine Sciences by participating in a Science or Engineering Fair either individually or in a team of up to three persons sometime in 2016?

Would that student like to receive scholarship money to further education and research in this exciting field?

If so, we invite the student to send us a project abstract of 300 words or less and a technical paper describing the project for consideration of special awards to be presented jointly by the Education Committees of the American Salvage Association (ASA) and the North American Marine Environmental Protection Association (NAMEPA).

The project will be evaluated by both associations with one submission. Papers and abstracts will be accepted from September 1, 2016 - October 1, 2016. Winners will be notified on or before October 15, 2016.

Competition will be divided into 2 groups for prizes: High School 9-12th grades and College/University undergraduate students.

1st place winners will be invited to receive the award at a marine industry function event of the American Salvage Association and/or the North American Marine Environmental Protection Association (NAMEPA) in the fall of 2016.

To be considered, the project should focus on one of the following broad Marine Science subject areas:  Marine Environmental Care, Naval Architecture, Marine Engineering, Ocean Engineering, Meteorology, Underwater Robotics, Air Emissions from Ships, Alternative Fuel Supplies for Ships, Oil and Chemical Spill Remediation, Offshore Well Control, Diving Systems, Marine Biology, Marine Ecosystems, Marine Microorganisms, Ship Design, Ship Breaking, Recovery of Sunken Ships, Cargo, Fuel or Pollutants, related Marine Salvage or Marine Environmental projects.
