Earth Science Week 2011 Contest Expands Globally

Earth Science Week is expanding eligibility for its annual photography contest to allow members of The American Geological Institute (AGI) International Affiliates to participate for the first time. Previously open only to residents of the United States, the photo contest has always been a major part of Earth Science Week, which this year is being celebrated October 9-15. 

"By celebrating the theme of ‘Our Ever-Changing Earth,' Earth Science Week 2011 focuses attention on the natural forces that shape our planet," says Ann E. Benbow, Ph.D., AGI's Director of Education and Outreach. "This is the perfect time to invite our colleagues and friends around the world to join this celebration of Earth science." Members of AGI International Affiliates are encouraged to enter the contest, titled "A World of Change in My Community." These individuals are invited to use a camera to capture evidence of the long- or short-term changes taking place around their planet and even in their own neighborhoods. Learn more at
