Geography Education Poster Competition: Making Connections to The Community

Type: Poster
Sponsor Groups: Geography Education Specialty Group
Organizers: Jonathan Wessell, Candice Luebbering


This poster competition will award $1000 in prize money. Competition details will be posted soon.

More and more effort at many institutions is being put into reaching out the community. Geography departments may be working with local schools or organizations to promote the field of Geography Education. They may also be bringing groups to their campuses. The emphasis could be on cultural/ethnic activities, GIS, or the Environment/sustainability. This is a good way to create lasting ties and recruit young energetic geographers. What are you doing personally? What is your department/college doing to promote Geography Education? This poster session will allow for sharing of these ideas, so new and fresh perspectives can be gained.

To be included in this session, please send your abstract confirmation and your PIN to Jonathan (Jon) Wessell at
