The National Geographic Education Foundation funded the Georgia Geographic Alliance (GGA) with a $50,000 grant in 2008. This marked the third year in a row that the GGA had secured this grant. The GGA is housed in the Department of Geography and Anthropology at Kennesaw State University. Its mission is to enhance geographic literacy among K-12 students throughout Georgia.
The grant money helped continue support for popular programs such as:
1) Geofest, a one-day professional development conference focusing on the teaching of geography.
2) Summer Institute, a yearly five-day intensive learning experience focusing on a specific topic in geography. Topics have included "Migration" and the "Environment of Georgia".
3) World Geography Bowl, where twelve teams from local high schools compete for prestige, trophies, and atlases.
