SEG Student Chapter Podcast Competition logo

Discover Your Chapter's Voice!

The inaugural SEG Student Chapter Podcast Competition, developed by the Society of Economic Geologists and the SEG Discovery to Recovery podcast team, encourages SEG Student Chapters to create audio discussions that highlight stories that are educational and thought-provoking, while promoting engaging and informative content related to economic geology and mineral deposit exploration and development. This is a superb opportunity for SEG Student Chapters to collaborate and tell the ore deposit stories that excite them, while also embracing the purpose and values of the SEG Discovery to Recovery podcast.

Entries will be posted on the SEG website and shared with SEG members worldwide, showcasing a variety of insightful and relevant topics to a global audience. Monetary prizes will be awarded to the top 3 submissions. Additionally, selected winners will have their submissions included within an upcoming episode of the Discovery to Recovery podcast and given the opportunity to present their entries during the SEG Student Chapter Earth Day event to be held in 2024.

SEG is using a OneDrive file collector for submissions. Please name your file with your Student Chapter name or abbreviation and the title of your podcast clip; OneDrive will automatically add your first and last name.

Please submit up to three relevant photos of guests or locations from the story, as these will be used to promote your chapter's work.
