An opportunity for students in the Earth and space science community
Powerful visuals can often evoke excitement and emotion, driving a deeper level of engagement with the audience and subject matter being presented. The AGU Michael H. Freilich Student Visualization Competition Program provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate creative ways to use visualization to present complex problems in the Earth and space sciences as well as transdisciplinary sciences.
The competition is open to individual and teams of undergraduate and graduate students who are legal U.S. residents. This program recognizes the years of support and dedication Michael H. Freilich, former Director of the NASA Earth Science Division, provided students in the Earth and space science community.
Winners receive travel grants funded by AGU, complimentary registration to the AGU Fall Meeting, and the opportunity to present their visually-based story on the NASA Hyperwall. This competition is funded by a NASA grant.
The competition is open to students who are legal U.S. residents and enrolled full-time in two- or four-year undergraduate or graduate institutions in the U.S. Previous grand prize winners of the Data Visualization and Storytelling Competition are not eligible to apply. Individual submissions in the Earth and space sciences as well as team submissions in convergent science are acceptable. Co-authors can be recognized in both individual and team submissions.
