The Visualize Your Water Challenge Workshop is 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. Educators may bring up to two students to the workshop as space allows. Interested middle school teachers are encouraged to sign up as space allows.

The workshop, led by Minnesota and Wisconsin Sea Grant staff, will cover nutrient pollution, geospatial mapping and story maps, all of which are essential to succeeding in the Visualize Your Water Challenge.

Visualize Your Water opened January 13 and closes on March 1, 2016. It seeks creative and compelling visualizations of water quality in Great Lakes Basin and Chesapeake Bay states*. From local streams to the entire watershed, high school students are challenged to tell the story of nutrient pollution in their region using mapping tools. Participating in the Visualize Your Water Challenge will give your students the opportunity to master career-ready technology skills, learn more about nutrient pollution in your local watershed and receive recognition and prizes for their contributions.

This 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.

*Eligible states: Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin
