Many Paths to Earth Science: About the Contest

For Earth Science Week 2019, the American Geosciences Institute invites you to enter the “Many Paths to Earth Science” video contest. Submit a brief, 30-90 second, original video that shows how people of various backgrounds participate in geoscience.

Immerse yourself in Earth Science Week 2019 with a video exploring the different ways people can join in the geoscience experience— the study of our planet’s land, water, air, and living things. Individuals of all backgrounds, ages, places, and abilities are encouraged to engage with the geosciences, whether that is as a geoscience professional, a hobbyist, or through civic engagement.

Your video entry might take almost any form. A public service announcement? An animated cartoon? A video incorporating your own original music? An audio interview with a family member or even a professional geoscientist? Some other format? You decide. Show how various people of different backgrounds contribute to make Earth science happen!
