Collaboration Area Posters 
This year we went digital with the collaboration area posters as a way to share them in more venues. This is a great way to catch up on activities of many of the groups all in one spot. Thanks to our leadership, student fellows & group members that contributed to these to make this happen!

Best Story Contest – Tell your ESIP Story for a chance to win a drone!
Why do you participate in ESP?  What is an interesting project that you’ve done with your ESIP colleagues?  Is there a learning experience from your ESIP involvement that you’d like to share? 

As you have seen in the last few Monday Updates, ESIP is collecting member stories about how being a member of ESIP has helped your research and life. I shared my story, ‘Long Range Transport of Erin‘ at Research As Art this year to celebrate 10 years of working with ESIP. This kicked off our story collection project where Bruce led the collection of thirty video stories on video at the meeting. A few examples have been posted on our Facebook page.

** It is not too late to share your story! Read below to learn how you can tell a story and WIN A DRONE!**  We have extended the story collection to August 15. You are invited to document an ESIP story or experience through the #myesipstory Slack channel.  FULL CONTEST RULES are here on the ESIP Website and details on slack invites are above.
