Student Awards and Competitions

Wanket and Kevin Erbas-White

Student competitions are an exciting element of each year's conference.  Individuals and colleges compete for recognition and school pride, and a few dollars, in a series of judged events in three areas: papers, posters and cartography.

Each year, the specific deadlines, rules and other useful information about each of the competitions is posted on the web pages associated with the conference.   If you are interested in preparing well in advance for any competition, consult with a faculty member familiar with the CGS conference, or view the competition guidelines from the previous year's confernence web site.

Please consider donating to the funds that help the CGS distribute cash awards to student in recognition of their academic excellence.  Pick an award category from the list below, or simply donate to our general fund.
