• The Steamship Authority Accepting Entries for 2020 “Sail into Imagination” Art Contest

    Local K-12 Students Invited to Submit Original Artwork Inspired by Steamship Authority Ferries

    Falmouth - The Woods Hole, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority (SSA) is accepting entries for its 5th Annual “Sail into Imagination” art contest for students in grades K‐12 living in the SSA’s constituent communities.

    Students living on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, and in Barnstable, Fairhaven, Falmouth, and New Bedford are invited to participate. Thirteen prize winners will be selected and the winning artwork will be showcased in a 2021 calendar, as well as displayed on the SSA’s website and exhibited on board SSA ferries.

    The contest theme “Sail into Imagination” was conceived of to encourage students to share their vision of traveling aboard SSA ferries and to inspire artistic interpretations of growing up by the sea.

    “It’s a joy seeing our ferries and ports through the eyes of these young artists,” said Kimberlee McHugh, Director of Marketing for the SSA. “The calendar and artwork onboard the ferries have become something our passengers and employees look forward to seeing year after year.”

    In addition to having their art displayed in the calendar and on select SSA ferries, the 13 winners will be awarded a $100 gift card for passenger travel aboard a SSA ferry and will receive an invitation to attend the official art unveiling reception hosted by the SSA this July.  All entrants, regardless of whether they’re chosen for the calendar, will also be entered to win a grand prize of a Go Boston Explorer Pass for a family of four.

    Students are invited to submit entries online, through the mail or by dropping their submissions at Steamship Authority Terminals no later than April 30, 2020. Entries submitted by U.S. Mail may be directed to the SSA’s Marketing Department at 509 Falmouth Road, Suite 1C, Mashpee, MA 02649. Winners will be announced on the Steamship Authority’s website in late June.
