WAURISA, the Washington State Chapter of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association, announces the 9th annual Dick Thomas Memorial Student Presentation Competition & Award. This award was established in 2006 to honor Washington State GIS pioneer and mentor Richard 'Dick' Thomas. The intent of this award is to honor Dick by continuing his work of encouraging students to excel in their studies and transition successfully into careers in the field of GIS. WAURISA's objective is to inspire students to present their original work related to GIS, geography, or geographic research at the annual Washington GIS Conference.

The WAURISA Student Presentation Competition Committee will screen all abstracts, select papers to be presented and judge the presentations during the Conference. All Committee decisions are final. The Competition winners will be announced during the ending session of the Conference. In the case of an award going to a presentation with multiple authors, the award will be given to the contact author, who will be responsible for distributing the prize equitably among the other authors. WAURISA will not involve itself in the distribution of awards among groups of student presenters.

The deadline is 4/7/2017.
