Subject: Digital Images of GEOLOGY contest update and more

Dear Educator:

As the new school begins, just a quick reminder that the DIGITAL IMAGES OF GEOLOGY contest has started.  We will be accepting email entries from students over the next five months.  For more information and details please go to www.michigan.gov/deqgeologyinmichigan (deq geology in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />michigan - all lower case no s p a c e s) then select Digital Images of Geology option.

As part of Earth Science Week, in partnership with the DNR Parks Eddy Discovery Center, we are sponsoring the Digital Images of Geology (DIG) Contest.  We invite and challenge Michigan students to use a multi-disciplinary approach to explore the geology around them to help them decide on a subject (or subjects), and they learn about the art of photography and digital technology as they develop their entries.  Students will also write a short essay documenting what they did.  You will note that we will only accept digital images sent via email.  Entries and other selected images will be displayed and the winners announced at the Annual Michigan Science Teacher Association meeting.  Students who enter will receive a certificate and their images will be posted on the DEQ web site for future access and developments.

I hope to receive entries from your students.
