GESG 2nd Annual Poster Competition

Title: Geography Education: Teaching About the Land and It’s Productivity

This year the GESG poster competition is focused on teaching about the land.
This could be in the areas of Geomorphology, Agriculture, Land Use & Planning, ect......

Again this year our sponsors have made it possible for the following awards to be offered:

1st place = $500
2nd place = $300
3rd place = $200

The primary goal of the GESG poster themes is that the poster MUST be representative
of the teaching of the material presented. Not just about research in the field, but how that
material is being used in the classroom to advance the knowledge of the field. For 2020
we are focusing on the land and its productivity. Judges will focus in on four distinct features
on the posters and the presenters while judging:

1. Visual representation (Images) of the land and its productivity

2. Text representation of how the material is being used in the classroom

3. Overall impact of the information being shared

4. How are the presenters responding to questions and interacting.
