Honors Student Paper Competition

Students planning to attend and Annual Meeting of the AAG are invited to submit abstracts to the Honors Student Paper Competition. From these, the CSG Academic Director selects finalists who are invited to submit full papers and deliver their papers at the CSG Honors Student Special Session. All finalists are awarded full student registration to attend the AAG Annual Meeting, and are invited to submit their papers for consideration of publication in Cartographic Perspectives. The student with the first place paper additionally receives a $100 prize and is recognized at the AAG Awards Banquet. Abstract submission deadlines coincide with AAG Abstract submission deadlines (usually near the end of October). Finalists are notified within a month of the abstract deadline, and final papers are due March 1. [more information]
