What is a GIS Competition? It’s an online GIS map making contest for youth in grades 4 – 12
Who is eligible: North Carolina public, private, or homeschooled students are eligible to enter the contest. Maps can be submitted individually or as a team of two students. Limit of one entry per student or team.
Challenge: Your challenge is to create an original North Carolina based map on a topic of interest or concern to you and connected to your school curriculum in some way. The area mapped can range from the entire state to a smaller area, like a county or city.
ArcGIS Online Requirement: You must use ArcGIS Online to create your original map. Your final map must be submitted in one of the following formats:
- ArcGIS Online Presentation
- ArcGIS Online Web App
- ArcGIS Online Story Map
ArcGIS Online is available to any K-12 school or club free of charge from Esri; see https://esri.app.box.com/connectedpdf for access to software and guidance. Your school will need to sign up for a free ArcGIS Online organization account so you can create and submit your final map. View the national competition announcement.
Prizes: The five maps judged the best in each division will be awarded a $100 prize and will move to national level judging.
