The Barnegat Bay Blitz Rain Barrel Challenge is a competition that engages schools and youth groups located in the Barnegat Bay watershed to learn about the bay and how people can help protect its water quality and natural resources. The students investigate the theme for each year's Challenge then work together to design rain barrels that address the theme.
The voting for the 2016 Challenge has ended. Scores are being recorded and we will announce the winner soon!
