Sea Scholar's Prize
WHAT IT IS: An initiative started in 2022, is continuing in 2023! CCMM Sea Scholar's Prize. Working with Cape Cod high schools (both public, private, and charter), CCMM will encourage local High School Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors to submit an essay or project in one of the following categories: Cape Cod maritime history, Cape Cod marine biology or an exhibit on display at the museum. Local judges, chosen for their experience within these topics, will review the submissions. Judges will choose the three winners in each category, including first, second and third place winners. The prizes will be $250 for third, $500 for second, $1000 for first, and a $500 prize for the winning school.
IF YOUR SCHOOL WOULD LIKE TO BE A PART OF THIS PROGRAM: Follow the link for the submission form along with the link to the rubric and prompts. The deadline to submit for this scholarship is March 13, 2023, at 11:59 pm. If you have any questions or issues please email email@example.com or call the museum at (508) 775-1723.
GOAL: CCMM is the Cape’s only museum dedicated to the preservation and celebration of local maritime heritage. The museum strives to provide ways for all ages to understand and enjoy our local maritime culture, and this prize will encourage maritime scholarship at the high school level. We have found that it is imperative to appeal to our younger community and help cultivate a new generation of life-long maritime enthusiasts. This prize will build on our success with outreach programs within schools, and this is a logical and innovative next step to increasing impact within the younger generations.
