1st–5th grade students are invited to enter the Seattle Aquarium's annual "Your Ocean—Our Home" art contest, now through April 11. This year the contest features the giant Pacific octopus, one of the coolest creatures in Puget Sound. The giant Pacific octopus is the largest species of octopus in the world, and can be found right here in the waters of Puget Sound. Giant Pacific octopuses can change color at will, expressing mood, comfort level and intentions to nearby animals. They’re also able to change texture, using knobs of muscle to mimic their surroundings.
Winners of the art contest are awarded an account from the T. Rowe Price College Savings Plan offered by the Education Trust of Alaska and a Seattle Aquarium family membership.
