"Freshwater" poster contest deadline is Oct. 13

From a press release:

The Wyoming Geographic Alliance proudly presents the "Geography Awareness Week Poster Contest."

First place winners will receive tickets to the Wyoming vs. CSU football game for the winner and his/her parents.

November 14-20, 2010 has been designated as National Geography Awareness Week. Geography Awareness Week highlights the National Geographic Society’s annual Geography Action! conservation and awareness program, a public outreach series designed to educate and excite people about our natural, cultural, and historic treasures. The Wyoming Geographic Alliance is sponsoring a poster contest based on the Geography Action! program. This year’s contest theme is "Freshwater."

The theme allows students to show their creativity while learning about fresh water and its impact and limits for the world. It also gives students an opportunity to describe fresh water from their own point of view.

To be eligible for the poster contest, a registration form must be submitted by each participating K-12 school no later than October 13, 2010, to the Wyoming Geographic Alliance at the University of Wyoming via phone (307.766.3213), fax (307.766.3294), or email (wga@uwyo.edu). Also use this contact info to order submission forms.
