Can US Senators Draw Their Own State?

Posted on Posted in general, GeographyAwareness

National Geographic has a really cool geography awareness week challenge for US Senators – can you draw your home state and give three points of interest within it?  Thus far, only a few Senators have replied with their drawings.  It should be no surprise that Al Franken is one of them, since he can draw all 50 states pretty dang well.  The other Senators’ drawings are at the link.  If you click on the highlighted states on the map, you’ll see the submissions by each participant.  To me, the most interesting pieces are the “points of personal interest”.  Everyone seems to go for “I live here”.  Personally, I want to know what’s taking the other Wyoming Senator so long.  Senator Enzi seemed to have no trouble with the boundary at all! 🙂
