Baynanza, an annual celebration of Biscayne Bay and its significance as one of the most important ecological systems in South Florida, has begun. Activities run throughout the months of March and April and culminate in the Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 18, 2020, just before the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. On Cleanup Day, thousands of volunteers come together to clean up the Bay's shoreline.
As part of the fun and festivities, Miami-Dade County and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens are offering a number of contests for students as well as a contest open to all.
- Bookmark design contest for Miami-Dade County elementary school students
- Poster design contest for Miami-Dade County middle school students
- T-shirt design contest for Miami-Dade County high school students
- Photography contest for Miami-Dade County residents of all ages; students and non-students
Deadline to submit is Friday, Dec. 20, 2019. All winners will be announced at the Baynanza Kickoff Event, which will be held at Vizcaya on March 11, 2020.
