Enter your department’s GeoBowl team to compete at this year’s AAG-GPRM Regional Meeting in Lawrence for fun, prizes, and glory, as well as the chance to represent the GPRM Region in the World Geography Bowl at the 2020 AAG Meeting in Denver, Colorado, April 3-7, 2020!
GeoBowl is a friendly and fun academic competition based on fundamental factual and conceptual geographical knowledge. Teams of 6 students compete – game-show style – to answer questions and earn points. Teams must have a minimum of 6 members, but can also have reserves that can rotate in and out of different matches. Teams are encouraged to include a mix of graduate, undergraduate, male, and female students, but this is not a requirement at the regional level.
At the Banquet and Awards Dinner on October 12, the top 3 teams and top 3 individual scorers will be recognized. The 6 highest scoring participants, including a minimum of one undergraduate and one female representative, will also be invited to represent the GRPM Region and compete in the World GeoBowl at the AAG Annual Meeting in Denver in 2020. Those invited will receive a small stipend for their participation at the Annual Meeting.
Pre-Registration Required! Schools wishing to participate are required to pre-register and send the following information: institution and departmental name, team member names, class (grad or undergrad), and email of each team member to Andrew Allen who is serving as the 2019 AAG-GPRM GeoBowl Coordinator. Please include the words GeoBowl in your team registration or any other GeoBowl related correspondence.
