The WHERE Challenge returns for its seventh year to encourage Canadian youth ages 9 - 14 to celebrate the Earth sciences by uncovering what on Earth is in their stuff. And WHERE on Earth does it come from. WHERE stands for Water, Hazards, Energy, Resources and Environment - all critical aspects of our Earth and representative of the areas in which geoscientists work. The Challenge requires students to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the occurrence, exploration, extraction and use of natural resources with a particular emphasis on where they are found and how they are used to make virtually everything we use every day. Please encourage youth in your circle of influence to enter the 2015 WHERE Challenge! Contest details and 2014 winning entries at http://www.earthsciencescanada.com/where.
As well, please consider joining the 2015 WHERE Challenge judges panel. Volunteering as a judge requires only a few hours, but the experience lasts a lifetime. Details at http://www.miningmatters.ca.
