The guidelines for the award are below and in essence require that a student chapter be active to receive the award. The Student Chapter Committee when evaluating the best student chapter reports seek out enthusiastic student chapters that capitalize on opportunities to enrich the experiences of its membership. Those chapters that best communicate the breadth of its activities and the impact it has on formulating the education and professional demeanor of its membership will be considered for the outstanding student chapter award.

Guidelines:

Must be an Active Student Chapter and have submitted the mid-year and end of year reports to AAPG. This means maintaining membership numbers (have at least 9 AAPG student members) and have at least 1 faculty sponsor who is an AAPG member.

Evaluations will be based on quality and detail of reports.

  • Activities: such as bringing in outside speakers, having field trips, community outreach or hosting special events.
  • Participation in community outreach focused on proliferation of scientific education.
  • Participation in AAPG Benefits and Programs: attendance of AAPG events such as ACE, ICE or Student Expos, and participation in events such as IBA or AGI Earth Science Week.
