Annual Hazards and Disasters Student Paper Competition
The Natural Hazards Center created the Annual Hazards and Disasters Student Paper Competition for undergraduate and graduate students in 2004 as a way to recognize the interdisciplinary nature of hazards and disaster research.
Papers 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 Natural Hazards Research and Applications Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, including registration fees.
