Students are invited to submit projects for the 2014 Awards before the deadline on the 12th December. The prizes include £1000 for the winner and two runners up will each receive £500.

The entries will be judged by a panel of scientists, leading academics and environmentalists which includes Dr Trevor Dixon, Marine Pollution Specialist at Advisory Committee of the Protection of the Sea and Kirsty Schneeberger who has received an MBE for services to environmental conservation.
