GeoTech Center Cancels 2014 National Geospatial Technology Skills Competition

Scott Jeffrey, Professor and Program Director, Geospatial Applications Program at Community College of Baltimore County, and Assistant Director / Senior Team member at the GeoTech Center, explained on a LinkedIn group that this year's contest was cancelled.

We have not been able to generate enough student participation to make the 2014 GeoTECH National Skills Competition a viable national competition. In spite of efforts to raise awareness of the contest in 2 year programs throughout the country there are only 8 students entered. It has been decided to cancel this years competition and to re-work the competition for next year. 

I'm hopeful a fresh start will draw more student participants in 2015.
