SkillsUSA Announces New College Geospatial Competition

Posted on Posted in Education

In case any of you aren’t on the ESRI Education email Newsleter, this is an item that of you may be interested in following. From the newsletter:

“SkillsUSA has partnered with the GIS industry to develop a competition program that will provide universities, colleges, and their students with a way to validate their geospatial programs and measure them against national standards…. By successfully passing an online qualifying exam (available in March and April) to test knowledge in GIS and remote sensing, students will be eligible to compete nationally and have a chance to earn national recognition and cash awards.”

Winners will receive cash and software prizes. I didn’t see anything specific about level of education, but as we find out more we will definitely share 🙂
