Our Earth Day Contest – Question 2

We introduced our Earth Day Contest in last week’s podcast episode, but for those of you who haven’t had a chance to listen yet, we will be asking three questions, one a week, until Earth Day, when we will pick a winner randomly from the entries with correct answers. You get one entry for each correct answer, and if you join our Facebook Group, you get an additional entry. All entries are due by 11:59pm Pacific Time on April 17th. The first question was posted last week, so if you missed it, just check out our archive and submit your answer.

If you answer all 3 questions correctly, AND join the Facebook Group, you can get a total of 4 entries into the contest. Without further ado, then, here is the second question and the possible answers, and Good Luck!

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.
