The Maryland State Geographic Information Committee (MSGIC) is proud to sponsor the 2019 Maryland Mapping Competition, which is a part of the Esri’s 2019 ArcGIS Online US School Competition. This competition is open to high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 4-8) students in the US who can analyze, interpret, and present data via an ArcGIS web app or story map.
To participate, each school must register and submit up to 5 entries for the competition. ArcGIS Online organizational accounts are needed for the competition and are available for any school for free. Teacher training to use ArcGIS Online is available and student project mentoring from GIS professionals will be conducted from March 15th to April 16th. The final deadline to submit projects to participate in the competition is May 3rd, 2019
The top five high school entries and the top 5 middle school entries will win $100 each, with the best entry from the high school and the best entry from the middle school to be submitted to Esri’s US competition. From across the nation, one high school project and one middle school project will each earn a trip to the 2019 Esri Education Conference in San Diego, California.
