MOVE MINING COMPETITION

In Move Mining, anyone 10 or older can enter to compete for a prize of $5,000. Teams submit an abstract and a 3 minute video about their concept to change the perception of mining.  Four finalist teams are chosen by judges and one finalist team is chosen by People’s Choice.  The People’s Choice award is for the video that receives the most votes online.  The five finalists compete in a live event at that year’s SME Annual Conference & Expo.

CELEBRATE THE MOVE MINING SEASON 5 WINNERS

Please join us in congratulating Children’s Mining Pavilion, the winners of the Season 5 Move Mining competition.  Presenting to participants in MINEXCHANGE 2021 SME Annual Conference & Expo virtually, this team from Mexico —Elizabeth Araux, Carolina Hoyos, Tania Vega, Fernando Garcia and Nancy Leon  — shared their idea on how to change the public’s perception of mining.

Children’s Mining Pavilion presented their plan to improve and share the Pavilion, an itinerant interactive experience, with students 6-12 years old across the area.   They took home the grand prize of $5,000 for their creativity, hard work and focus.

Thank you to our wonderful Move Mining Season 5 emcee, Heyda Vass, and our four expert judges Meg Roman, Tom Milligan, Allison Coppel and Nancy Morales-Arango. We truly appreciate their contribution to helping change the perception of mining!

The support of Move Mining’s Overall Sponsor Komatsu has been indispensable throughout this program.
