What’s involved?
This year’s competition is about explaining the story behind a local or world issue; What is where? Why there? Why care? and to develop an action plan (solution) that can be communicated to an appropriate audience via Story Map. Students must use the geographic inquiry model to help develop an action plan that utilizes the geographic concepts of thinking to better communicate the plan.
