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.

  • 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.
