ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) congratulates the University of Indonesia's American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) Student Chapter as the winner of the Earth Science Week AAPG Student Chapters of the Asia Pacific Region Video Contest. The contest was developed as an extension of Earth Science Week 2021, which celebrated the theme of "Water Today and for the Future."

Organized by AGI, Earth Science Week is an annual celebration and public awareness campaign reaching millions of people worldwide each year with information about geoscience. For Earth Science Week 2021, AGI invited members of the AAPG Student Chapters in the Asia Pacific Region to submit brief, original videos exploring ways that people use, manage, conserve, are impacted by, or face issues with water in their communities.

Members of the winning team at the University of Indonesia AAPG Student Chapter were Azzahra Karin Ayadzani, Khalisha Shafa Yumnanisa, Savira Syahfitri Ikhsan, Natasya Alia Zahran, Karina Sekar Arum, Nadia Shebrina, and advisor Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Abdul Haris.

The team offered this video description: "The location featured in the video is Indonesia, where water is a big part of our lives here. Indonesia is blessed with lots of water sources but lacks efforts in utilizing our abundant water. We made this video in hope that in the future, we could work together to optimize the water potential in Indonesia, so water can be more useful and resourceful for the prosperity of its people's lives."

Congratulations to the team and others who entered. The team winning received a prize of $300 USD and an electronic copy of an AGI publication.

Information about upcoming contests for Earth Science Week 2022, which will focus on the theme "Earth Science for a Sustainable World," will be posted at Earth Science Week Contests.
