Awards Banquet

Each year, the Oklahoma Geological Foundation conducts the Annual Awards Banquet to honor and give recognition to deserving students, teachers, and educational institutions by providing Grants, Scholarships, and Awards.  From throughout Oklahoma, students, teachers, and their families are invited to attend the banquet.  This reception continues to grow each year as students and teachers are presented their respective Grants and Awards.  During this time, the recipients and their families are casually able to meet with the Foundation’s Directors and Donors along with other peers from various educational facilities. View our Events Calendar for the Upcoming Date.
