First PlaceFirst Place: Sergio Esperancinha
Paradox Basin, Moab, Utah, USA.  Panoramic view across Colorado River towards the north from the Moab Rim Trail viewpoint. From this viewpoint it is possible to see the Moab/Spanish valley, one of the major salt structures in the Paradox fold and fault belt (Doelling, 1988). This valley is a good example of an eroded salt anticline, but on the contrary of what would be the expected draining direction of the river (parallel to the salt valley direction), here the Colorado River cross-cuts the valley.  This was the “paradox” noticed by the early explorers of the region and hence the name of the Paradox Formation and Basin.

Second placeSecond Place: Liyana Rafiuddin

AAPG and the Student Chapters

Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the world-wide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today. Currently the world's largest professional geological society with over 30,000 members, AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public. The Association is guided by officers and a House of Delegates elected annually. The organization's programs are administered by an Executive Director and staff located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Student Chapter Program of AAPG is made up of collegiate groups of geoscience students and one of the world's foremost co-educational programs within the geoscience sector with over 145 chapters. It provides students the opportunity to develop leadership skills and serves as a focal point for developing a feeling of professionalism through meeting industry representatives.
