Earth Science Week Contests

A heron stalking fish in a local stream. A beach rehabilitation team planting grass by the seashore.

These images are among the 2014 finalists in the American Geosciences Institute’s Earth Science Week photography and visual arts contests.

Open to individuals of any age, including students in public, private, or charter school, the photography contest’s theme for this year is “Earth Systems Interacting.” Entries must be original, authentic, unpublished photographs – including on Facebook – that capture at least one Earth system (land, air, water, biosphere) affecting another Earth system in your community.

EarthScienceWeek_logoWinners will receive a cash prize of $300 and a copy of AGI’s “The Geoscience Handbook.” In addition, the names of winners and finalists along with their entries will be posted on the Earth Science Week website and included in the Earth Science World Image Bank.
