Participants in the competition paint a blue trash barrel destined for Galveston Beaches based on a theme: ocean organisms, marine debris, coastal and marine ecosystems, or Galveston recreational activities. After the competition, the barrels will be added to Galveston’s Beaches where they will be enjoyed by visitors and encourage proper disposal of trash to reduce aquatic trash.

Individuals and groups of all ages can register for a barrel to beautify. Help us keep our beaches clean and pristine! Registration is open until May 1, 2024.  To register, click here.

Entries are due by May 27, 2024.

Viewing and judging will be held on June 8 at East Beach during the World Ocean Day Festival. Winners will be announced at 3:00 pm.
