Thank you for this excellent National Level Student Competition. I remember two years ago, I asked (and you did - thank you) to give a prize for the best open source poster.
I think it will great to have GeoForAll Student awards and certificates for the best three free and open source posters given for this competition in 2018, if you can arrange judging for this etc. I have made request for GeoForAll awards for four events in 2018 (each event has 500 USD ) to the OSGeo Board .
First prize -250 USD ;Second prize - 150 USD; Third prize -100 USD
The main deliverable for any LOC wishing to take up this is to ensure there is an LOC contact responsible for running the student awards with criteria setup etc and award ceremony done at the closing ceremony and awards given to winners.
Once you confirm that you are happy to arrange the logistics for this, we can discuss ideas in the community on how to make this happen. Thanks.
