A Very "Fishy" Naming Contest

noaa marine debris removal fishI only found out about this contest from Rick's blog this morning and it ends in five days...sorry for such short notice.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program is having a contest to name their mascot and all students in grades 1 through 6 from all U.S. state–recognized public, private, and home schools are eligible to participate. Hey, Saipan has state-recognized schools! Are there any teachers out there that want to submit some entries?

Information on the contest can be found here and the entry form can be found here.

Rick suggests cheating and feeding some little kid a suggestion. I would never recommend that...uh, never.  It's not about winning, it's about how you play the...nevermind.  

So anyway, NOAA is looking for a name that conveys important messages like:

-“Keep the sea free of debris!”
-Reduce, reuse, and recycle!
-Marine debris is a global problem we can solve and by working together we can make a difference.

How about Stewie G, the Global Steward of the Ocean?
