Young Author Awards 
Calling All Young Authors!

The Highway Geology Symposium has existed for over 64 years and over the years has had much participation by what might be considered “Young Authors”. This participation by our younger professionals has been fabulous and is a true benefit to the Symposium and the Mission of HGS. HGS is taking participation of Young Authors to another level by offering a competition with both financial, registration and award recognition. This will be an annual and perpetual award with up to three awards presented. We are very excited about this new opportunity for participation by Young Authors and we encourage you to submit your paper and to present your work at the Symposium. HGS is all about sharing our geologic technical experiences and we look forward to hearing about and learning from your experience. So please see the the link below for guidelines for participation requirements and award details.
