Calling all undergraduate / community college students!
I saw this ad for a "Bizarre Map Challenge" and thought some of you might be interested in submitting a map. The challenge doesn't start until March 1 and goes through March 22nd - so perfect timing for final projects. The grand prize is $5,000, so it could be worth the effort. Click here for the flyer with all the details.

Dear Geography Colleague:
The Annual Meeting of the Oregon Academy of Science (OAS) will be held Saturday, February 27, 2010 at Concordia University in Portland. Presentations will begin about 8:00 AM and will end about 4 PM (depending on the number of papers submitted). A mid-morning coffee break and lunch (from about noon to 2:00) provide opportunities to make new Geography acquaintances and renew old friendships. This is an invitation for you to attend and/or participate.
For some years now, the Geography Section has been among the leaders in the Academy in terms of numbers of attendees and presenters. Most importantly, the quality of papers has been high, providing strong testimony to the vitality of Geography in Oregon. Your submission will help insure that Geography stays strong in Oregon.
Presentations on any topics of geographic interest are welcome and may be made as orally-delivered papers or posters. Or, if you do not wish to present, you are welcome to attend, learn what your colleagues are doing, and participate in discussions.
This meeting, the Geography Section of the OAS is soliciting papers for a Special Session on Urban Agriculture. The local production of food is an emerging focus across the social and physical sciences, in government and in the popular media, and research must necessarily draw from diverse perspectives and approaches. This Special Session will provide an opportunity to foster a dialogue across academic disciplines. With this in
mind, submissions are not restricted to just those that identify themselves as "geographers."
Abstracts are due to *Joe Poracsky firstname.lastname@example.org or Hunter Shobe email@example.com by February 5, 2010*.
Monday April 19, 2010 the Washington chapter of URISA (Urban and Regional Information Systems Association) will be holding a series of half-day workshops on both Open Source GIS & ArcGIS.
