Today, the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF) ventured to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation office in Davie, Florida to award the first place winner of the Marine Biology Scholarship, Patience Hall. Along with a $250 scholarship, Patience had the opportunity to meet Guy Harvey and receive an original piece of his artwork as well as an autographed Guy Harvey book.
The Marine Biology Scholarship was designed to reward students for simply learning about marine animals. Patience, and other participants, prepared for the scholarship by studying the Marine Biology Challenge Database at namethatfish.net.
The scholarship, in the form of an online quiz, invited all high school and college students in Florida to participate between February 17-23, 2013. Other top scorers also won Guy Harvey autographed prizes.
