Earth Connections: Contest Judges and Judging

Entries will be judged on the basis of the quality of the approach taken to addressing four criteria:

  1. Exploration of an example of “Earth Connections” (how human activity affects, or is affected by, one or more Earth systems)
  2. Elements of Earth system science (geoscience)
  3. Creative approach to holding audience attention
  4. Quality of technical features

The winner will receive a prize of $300 USD, a copy of AGI's The Geoscience Handbook, and his or her photograph will be used on the Earth Science Week Website. The winner's and finalists' names will be posted on the Earth Science Week Website. Winners will need to supply AGI with a photograph to be posted on the website. All other expenses not stated are the sole responsibility of the winners. No cash substitution for prizes will be permitted and prizes are nontransferable.

AGI will make a reasonable effort to award prizes to international teams, subject to laws, restrictions, and practicalities of international postage and fund transfers.

Decisions of AGI staff regarding all aspects of the contest including suitability of entries, eligibility for judging, contest schedule, number of entries accepted, awarding of prizes, and all other aspects of the contest are at the discretion of AGI staff.
