Deadline for Earth Science Day Contests

AGI is sponsoring three national contests for Earth Science Week 2013. The photography, visual arts, and essay contests - all focused on the event theme of “Mapping Our World” - allow both students and the general public to participate in the celebration, learn about Earth science, and compete for prizes.

The photography contest, open to all ages, focuses on “Mapping My Community.” Open to students in grades K-5, the visual arts contest is titled “Making Maps Through the Ages.” Finally, students in grades 6-9 are eligible to enter the essay contest: “How Geoscientists Use Maps.” Essays of up to 300 words should describe how geoscientists use maps to monitor interactions of Earth systems.

The deadline for entries is October 18, 2013. The first-place prize for each contest is $300 and a copy of AGI’s “Faces of Earth” 2-DVD package.
