A Mapping Contest Open to all New Jersey Middle School and High School Students!
ESRI is pleased to announce a contest to create New Jersey-themed online maps, using Esri’s freely available ArcGIS Online platform. Teachers: Encourage your students to learn some online mapping skills and create a story map using New Jersey content. The contest is part of a national mapping competition sponsored by ESRI, the maker of ArcGIS. Students working alone or in pairs submit their maps to their schools, who in turn submit up to 5 of their best maps to be judged at the state level. New Jersey may award up to ten Amazon gift cards of $100 each for the top high school and middle school maps ($100 per team, max of 5 high school and 5 middle school). The top high school and middle school StoryMaps will be submitted for judging at the national level. From among all the winners across the nation, ESRI will award to one high school and one middle school team travel grants to attend in San Diego July 6-9, 2019.
Important Dates: School must pre-register by March 22 and submit maps by May 1
