The WHERE Challenge

The WHERE Challenge is a national contest for students ages 9-14, managed by Mining Matters.
WHERE stands for the fields of study in which geoscientists work; Water, Hazards, Energy, Resources
and the Environment. This initiative provides a way for youth to answer the question
What is in your stuff and WHERE on Earth did it come from?


Launched in September of each year, the WHERE Challenge runs until the following March, offering up
to $10000 in regional and national prizes to individual students, their teachers and schools. Learn more
