Experimental science or engineering projects involving marine sciences that were conducted in 2012 at the high school or undergraduate college level are eligible.  Projects should focus on one of the following broad marine science areas:  Marine environmental care, 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, other marine salvage related or marine environmental projects.
 
Project abstracts of 300 words or less and a technical paper describing the project will be accepted until September 15, 2012.  Winners will be notified on or before October 15, 2012.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be recognized.  Additional “special recognition” awards may be presented dependent upon submissions.  First prize winners will be invited to receive their awards at an industry event of the ASA and NAMEPA in the fall of 2012.  For additional information on the competition and to submit an entry, please go to:  http://www.americansalvage.org/science-fair/
