Dive Project Cornwall Launches a UK Wide Competition for Schools!

DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL believes it is every young person’s right to experience the ocean. We also believe that educating our children about the wonders of the planet’s marine environment and the crucial part it plays in our existence, and that of all ocean life, will help safeguard our seas for future generations. Never has this been more important than now.

DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL has now launched an ambitious project to educate hundreds of thousands of young people by delivering an education programme directly into schools across the UK, in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society Our mission is to raise awareness of the importance of the planet’s marine environment and its vital role in our very own existence

Competition Open until 31st March 2022

At the heart of DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL is a nationwide competition open to all secondary schools for 400 lucky teenagers to win the experience of a lifetime; a 6-day, life-changing trip to Cornwall where they will learn to scuba dive, enjoy outdoor adventures, take up beach-related activities and attend presentations from leading marine industry experts.

This truly immersive experience will take the teens from classroom to shoreline and beyond, from our on-site training pool to taking their first steps in discovering the wonders of life underwater in the ocean, igniting their imaginations to join the Ocean
Conservation movement.

Many of these children will never have had the opportunity to experience the ocean close at hand. They will leave this residential course, delivered in the breath-taking environment of the Lizard in Cornwall, based at Porthkerris as PADI qualified open water divers, ready to spread the word as ocean influencers.

Any secondary school can register & registrations close on 31st March 2022.

A panel of 7 judges (key figures from Cornwall and the Dive industry) will meet on 4th April to create a criteria from which to shortlist the schools.

The shortlisted schools will then be asked to perform 3 activities and submit their competition entries before 30th May 2022…

  • make a marine creature from one use plastic (and send in pictures/video of it)
  • make a short 2 minute video why their school should/want to win the competition
  • write a 500 word essay on why we should protect the ocean
