These Visualize Your Water Challenge opportunities are for high school teachers and mentors of high school students in the U.S. Great Lakes Basin to help students prepare entries for the federal government's challenge to youths in grades 9-12. Interested students are also invited to attend as space allows. By the end of the presentations and discussions participants will know how to use ArcGIS tools to create the type of interactive story maps that just might win the Challenge. The sessions will include helpful tips on geography, data analysis and visualization, water quality and more.

Participating in the Visualize Your Water Challenge gives students the opportunity to master career-ready skills. The webinar and workshop are hosted by The University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute and Minnesota Sea Grant. The challenge is hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Geological Survey, and a coalition of government agencies and private industry in support of the work of the Challenging Nutrients coalition and the White House ConnectED Initiative.

For more information about these opportunities, email Cindy Hagley, Environmental Quality Extension Educator, Minnesota Sea Grant, chagley@umn.edu. The webinar will be recorded and available on the Minnesota Sea Grant website through March 1, the last day of the challenge.
