You’ve heard the buzz — now make sure to attend as the winners of this year’s global AAPG/AAPG Foundation Imperial Barrel Award competition will be announced in a thrilling awards ceremony that is open for all to attend — giving you the chance to experience it in person. It’s also a convenient way to start your ACE 2017 experience, because the awards presentation will take place just prior to the convention’s Opening Session and Awards Ceremony. So come a bit early and be part of the excitement.

The AAPG/AAPG Foundation IBA program is an annual competition in evaluating prospective basins, featuring teams of the top geoscience graduate students from around the world — all of whom have qualified for the finals by first winning IBA Region and Section competitions. The fast-moving presentation will include an introduction of the IBA program and all the teams who made it to the finals, and recognition of the many generous sponsors who make the program possible. It all leads to the grand finale — the announcement of this year’s winning teams. Come help us celebrate the accomplishments of these hard-working students — and see which teams win scholarship funds for their geosciences departments, and applaud the school that leaves Houston with the title of IBA champion. Visit iba.aapg.org to see a list of finalists.
