2012 Geography Awareness Week Bookmark Contest

That's right, it's that time of year again!  The WGA is hosting it's second Geography Awareness Week Bookmark Contest, and we hope it will be just as successful as last year.  In 2011 we had over 450 entries from all grade levels, and we're hoping to increase that number this year. 

The theme for Geography Awareness Week, November 11-17, is "Declare Your Interdependence!"  This year's theme explores the idea that individuals are constantly making connections all over the world through the things they buy, the foods they eat, and the decisions they make. 

Once again, the WGA will be awarding 1st and 2nd place prizes for the following groups:

  • K-2nd
  • 3rd-5th
  • 6th-8th
  • 9th-12th

The prizes that will be available are:

  • 1st place: Published bookmarks that will be distributed to schools and libraries throughout Wyoming and a gift card ($25 for K-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th-8th; $50 for 9th-12th)
  • All winners will receive an inflatable globe, a National Geographic World Map, and a 1 year subscription to National Geographic Kids (K-8th) or National Geographic Magazine (9th-12th).

For directions on how to enter and complete rules, download the rules and registration form (or the reduced form) and have the bookmarks postmarked by October 22, 2012 and mailed to:
