This year the poster contest submissions must be made on a letter sized manila folder. Illustrations and content will be on the inside of the folder; category written on the tab; submission form on the front; and citations on the back cover. Scroll down to view a sample.
TAGE will lead the Texas GeoWeek 2013 celebration with the 26th annual mini-poster contest and Geo Family Fun nights. TAGE challenges you to do geography and become explorers of the world around you. Exploration is not just about climbing mountains and large-scale expeditions. Exploration is about discovering the world around you and "finding new stuff."
This year the students will document their exploratory journey, revealing newfound revelations and personal adventures. Share your exploratory journey with us and participate in the TAGE annual poster contest.
