Thank You! for supporting the Putting Kids on the Map campaign!

The Arizona Geographic Alliance (AzGA) crowdfunding campaign Putting Kids on The Map raised 100% of the $5,000 needed to purchase of a gym sized map of Arizona. AzGA wants to thank all who helped us meet this funding goal.  Small amounts from many sources put us over our objective.  Next steps: design and create the map, select the activities and lessons that will go with it; buy the map; share it with teachers and students all over the state.

We have been slightly delayed in creating the map, activities and trunk of accessories, and develop the lending program because we unexpectedly were given a National Geographic Arizona maps.  This 17x20' map and accessories required us to have people trained by NGS, train teachers in state to use the map along with other requirements.  Some of this work overlaps creating a program for the AzGA generated maps, but is time consuming and has delayed the creation of the maps we plan to create as a result of your generous giving.

We will be returning to the building of two AzGA maps as soon as possible. We will keep you posted on our progress. 

Thank you so much for your time and support.
