Kudos to the Clarement Graduate University on the launch of their GIS Challenge – a challenge to students, in a partnership with Esri, where students are invited to submit their work and participate in an exciting competition with some pretty sweet prizes. The 2 major challenge areas of interest are: public health and humanitarian issues, and transportation safety. Students are encouraged to follow these 2 subject areas and provide solutions that show exemplary examples of visualization, analysis, narratives, and /or creating alerts.
Details… The students who submit the best application in each challenge area will receive a first-place prize of $1,000 in cash and the opportunity for a $35,000 scholarship to pursue an advanced degree concentrating on GIS in SISAT at CGU. The first-place prize also includes up to $1,000 to travel to California for CGU’s GIS Day on Nov. 16, 2011. Other top finalists will receive $100 cash prizes. A panel of experts will choose the winners. Submissions will be judged on the entrant’s ability to extend our understanding of the two selected challenge areas.
