Help revitalize traditional poster contests by joining the Vanguard Cabinet for a showcase of recent 'maptastic' GIS student innovations! Instead of traditional printed and thumb-tacked maps, we are going completely digital! There will be a series of brief presentations (no longer than five minutes each) during the competition session on September 9th at 2pm where students will compete for the "Best Presentation" cash award. Additionally, digital submissions will be accepted for students unable to attend the conference, where they can compete for additional cash prizes in various categories. All approved submissions will be uploaded online and displayed in the common area during the conference, to allow conference attendees to vote on a "People's Choice" award. All awards will be presented to select competitors during the Wednesday morning awards ceremony.
More information, including a student application form, can be found at the competition website: https://sites.google.com/site/gispro2014studentcompetition/
