Natural Hazards Center Student Disaster Writing Competition

March 21st, 2009 · No Comments

The Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado is once again holding its Annual Hazards and Disasters Student Paper Competition for undergraduate and graduate students.

Papers can present current research, literature reviews, theoretical arguments, or case studies. Eligible topics include floods and floodplain management, Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes, climate change, warning systems, hazard mitigation, emergency management, vulnerability, risk communication, and other topics related to the social and behavioral aspects of hazards and disasters.

Entries will be judged on originality, organization, and knowledge of the topic. One undergraduate and one graduate winner each will receive $100, a mention in the Natural Hazards Observer; publication on the Natural Hazards Center Web site, and an invitation to the Annual Hazards Research and Applications Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, including registration fees. Entry deadline is April 30. More information can be found on Center’s web site, here. Thanks to the Center’s helpful Disaster Research e-newsletter for bringing this to my attention.
