GAW Contest – Details

Update: The winner of the GAW and VSTV anniversary contest was Dee! Thanks for entering and be sure to check back in December when we start our 2.5 year anniversary contest.

The Geography Awareness Week contest is broken into 5 weeks. Each week we will post a question that must be answered in the online form provided with the question. Each week that you answer the question correctly you will receive an entry, and while you can only enter oncer per week, that means you can still get up to 5 entries overall for the grand prize, a new iPod Nano. All entries must be in by November 7, 2007.

Week 1 Entry – Oct 1
Week 2 Entry – Oct 8
Week 3 Entry – Oct 15
Week 4 Entry – Oct 22
Week 5 Entry – Oct 29

In addition to the 5 entries from answering questions you can also get 2 entries by emailing us a copy of your promotion/flyer for your GAW or GIS day events. You can get 5 entries by emailing us a 30 second audio or video promotion for you GAW or GIS day event. Feel free to email for more details. The contest is open world wide. That is a total of 12 entries giving you more chances to win.

The winner of the Grand Prize and runner up prizes will be announced on Episode 121 of A VerySpatial Podcast, November 11, 2007. Please remember, only one entry per person per week. Good luck and let us know if you have any questions.

New Poll: Industry

We are kind of interested in who is visiting the blog and listening to the podcast and what your day-to-day consists of. To get at this bit of info we are asking “where do you sit?” on our new poll, meaning what industry do you call your home. I know that some of you straddle the fence between 2 or more, but at the end of the day you usually feel that you sit in one group more than the others. We went fairly straight-forward with your options of:

  • Federal/State Government
  • Local Government
  • Private (aka Commercial)
  • Academia
  • Non-profit
  • Let us know which group you think you fit in.

    As for our last poll, it is clear that most folks feel they are at least giving this whole “green” thing a try, though only a few rank up there with Ed Beagley, Jr. Just a reminder to all of you who attend conferences where they give out tote bags…they make great grocery bags.
