URISA's Vanguard Cabinet is hosting a student GIS competition during GIS-Pro 2014: URISA’s 52nd Annual Conference, taking place September 8-11, 2014 in New Orleans. Students may submit a map or poster .pdf (or image file), a PowerPoint presentation, or a video walk-through of a web app., mobile app., model, or script they have developed. Competitors are encouraged to attend the conference to present their work, but those unable to attend will still be able to compete for all but the "Best Presentation" award. All students are welcome to compete, as long as they submit evidence of at least half-time enrollment at an accredited college for the Fall 2014 term. More details, as well as the competition application form, can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/gispro2014studentcompetition/.
Student Volunteer Opportunities: URISA strives to involve students as much as possible in its annual conference. There are a limited number of opportunities to attend the conference through a complimentary registration, in return for volunteering at the conference. An application is posted here: https://sites.google.com/site/gispro2014studentcompetition/volunteer
