2017 ArcGIS Online Maryland School Competition

What is it? The 2017 ArcGIS Online Maryland School Competition is a map competition open to Maryland middle school and high school students. It is a collaborative endeavor between the Maryland Geographic Alliance and Esri Education.

Who is eligible? Middle school (grades 4-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students from Maryland public or non-public schools are eligible to enter.

How to enter: Update: Submission forms will be available after the teacher registration date (extended until April 14th). See Guidelines for more information.

Objective: Create an original Maryland-based map using ArcGIS Online. There is no specific topic or theme. The map scale can range from the local level (like a county or city) to the state, so long as the area mapped lies within the bounds of Maryland. The final product will be in the form of a presentation, web app, or story map.

Awards: An award of $100 will be made to the top five middle school teams and the top five high school teams. Only one team from each division will be submitted to the national competition. Esri will provide a travel grant to one high school team and one middle school team, each team consisting of the student(s) and at least one parent/guardian (could be teacher/rep) to attend the Esri Education GIS Conference.
