Deep-C’s “Name That Buoy” contest came to a close last week. We received many creative and well thought out entries from high school science classes around the state of Florida. But in the end, only one name could be selected. So after careful deliberation by our expert panel of judges, the winner is…(drum roll please!)
Submitted by Mr. Walker’s Marine Science class at West Florida High School in Pensacola
In addition to being an intrepid seafarer, an Argonaut is also a pelagic octopus otherwise known as the paper nautilus.
So thank you to all of the classes that took the time to suggest names for our SailBuoy and that have followed her activities as she moves around the Gulf. Stay tuned for an article on the website sharing the most notable contest entries submitted. And to those who participated, look for a small token of appreciation from us at Deep-C to be sent shortly via snail mail. We hope you will continue to track Deep-C's ArgoKnot as the end of her journey nears.
