2019 Bookmark & Beyond
NEW – 5th Grade Class Projects!
We have a brand new opportunity for you! New in 2019 – 5th Grade Classrooms are invited to submit class projects using GIS mappings software. Using MapItFast – a cutting edge software that has been generously donated for your use – your students have the opportunity to learn about GIS mapping. Once your class has created their map project, your students will practice writing and speaking skills as they write a collaborative project report, and video their presentation for our judges. The winning classroom will be invited to present their project at our Annual Bookmark Celebration in Cheyenne! We invite you to try out MapItFast by exploring the project scenarios in our Try It Out document, then sign up for your class account!
The Bookmark Program showcases students’ understanding and appreciation of Wyoming’s essential resources. Each year, second through fifth graders illustrate a message to their peers via the medium of a bookmark. To spread their messages, Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom assembles a committee to select the top 10-20 bookmarks from the submissions. These finalists are then published on our website, and the public can vote for a People’s Choice Award. The People’s Choice Award winner becomes one of around 10 bookmarks that are selected for mass publication and then distributed around the state. Request bookmarks from last years’ selection here.
Congratulations to the finalists for the 2018 Bookmark Contest!
