MyCOE projects consist of the following elements:
At least one original map as a centerpiece
- Maps may be digital (e.g., GIS maps) or hand drawn but must be legible. Remember, this map may be displayed on the MyCOE Web site and/or presented at international meetings.
- You may submit more than one map, but you must include at least one map.
- Your map should be georeferenced at a reasonable level to where your project work refers to "our earth"
A written description of your project, including:
- A title that lets us know what it is about; five to seven words is usually enough
- Background on the geography of the area being studied, or "my community"
- A summary of your work, which should be an abstract of about 350 to 500 words
- If you had a mentor, advisor or teacher help you, please note their name in your submission.
You might also include a list of proposed actions or solutions for your community.
You could also describe the impact your project might have. Your statement could answer the following questions:
- How would you like your MyCOE project to make a difference in your community?
- Have you shared the results of your MyCOE project locally such as with the newspaper, city government, or community leaders? If so, how?
- Have you already seen any effect on your community as a result of your MyCOE project? If so, please describe.
- How has your MyCOE project affected you personally?
- Please be sure to include the name, address, telephone number, and/or e–mail address of each participant.
In addition, you may want to include other elements appropriate to your project. These elements are optional, and may include
- Supplemental essay or text (if you want to write a longer report)
- Field observations
