ALEXANDRIA, Va. ― Won't you share a story of your own? The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) invites you to tell the story of how AGI made a difference for you ― in your studies, in your career, or in your life generally.
You could win a $100 prize and more in AGI's new Game Changer Contest, just for sharing a brief anecdote of up to 100 words about how AGI has been a “game changer” for you.
Have you received an AGI scholarship, fellowship, or award? Has an AGI resource, webinar, or professional program allowed you to do something new? Have you benefited from AGI programs such as Earth Science Week, GeoRef, or Critical Issues? Has AGI had a positive effect on your life in some other way?
“Here at AGI, we work hard to make a difference for geoscientists of all stripes,” says AGI Executive Director Allyson Anderson Book. “We’d love to hear how we impacted you. We want to know how we’re doing and what works, so that we can continually improve our programs, products, and services for the geosciences.”
The AGI Game Changer Contest is open to any interested person. Simply submit your complete online entry by 5 p.m. ET Friday, April 5, 2019. Winners will be notified in May 2019.
One prize of $100 each will be awarded in the categories of Education, Workforce, Geoscience Policy, Scholarly Information, and Leadership. In addition, each winner will receive a copy of AGI’s The Geoscience Handbook. Winning stories will be featured in AGI publications in print and online.
