- How you will encourage others to pursue excellence and leadership in their geospatial careers
- A brief overview of a presentation you would present at SPAR 3D Expo & Conference if selected
Employers and mentors are welcome to support this program by encouraging a YGP they know to submit their video. The YGP of the Year will receive a Full Conference Pass to SPAR 3D Expo & Conference plus three nights of free lodging and complimentary airfare to attend. The winner will also be given a brief presentation opportunity as part of the conference program to address conference attendees.
