2015 Poster Contest Winners

Every year at the annual conference we host a map contest with 9 registered categories and 4 special awards and this years event was a great success! We had some very unique entries that showcased how diverse the subject matters can be for creating maps. There were a range of entries from traditional infrastructure, trails, analysis and base maps to maps depicting national tragedies and loss of life, our aging nation, gender inequalities, and even monsters of fakelore. All together we had a total of 44 entries that were judged by the the following 8 volunteer judges; Kyle Belott, David Buehler, Bill Cozzens, James Landwehr, JoAnn Parks, Codie See, Colter Sikora, and Howard Veregin. A special thanks to Dan Seidensticker for organizing the contest and to all the student volunteers who helped with putting it on.
