The American Geological Institute (AGI) involves students to taking part in Earth Science Week (mostly in October of each year) which encourages people everywhere to explore the natural world and learn about the geosciences. The theme for Earth Science Week differs. AGI hosts Earth Science Week in cooperation with other sponsors as a service to the public and the geoscience community. Each year, local groups, educators, and interested individuals organize celebratory events. The program is supported by the U.S. Geological Survey, NASA, the National Park Service, the AAPG Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, ExxonMobil, ESRI, and other geoscience groups.

AGI usually sponsors several national contests in conjunction with Earth Science Week. Students, scientists and the general public are encouraged to enter the Earth Science Week contests. Students in grades K5 are encouraged to enter the visual arts contest. For more information on these contests and the full program, visit The American Geological Institute is a nonprofit federation of 47 geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 120,000 geologists, geophysicists, and other earth scientists.
