The 2020 Wisconsin map contest is part of the Esri national student ArcGIS Online competition. It is open to all Wisconsin students in public schools, private schools, charter schools, and home schools.
Two contest divisions:
With skill, passion, and analysis, high school and middle school students are exploring their world and creating maps with ArcGIS Online. Esri challenges US students to create and share projects about something in their home states, striving to be among the best in the school, state, and nation.
Esri’s 2020 ArcGIS US School Competition is open to high school and middle school students in the US who can analyze, interpret, and present data via an ArcGIS web app or story map.
Your topic can range from local to state-wide. It can be historical or current time. Your topic should be something that can be better understood when presented on a map. Your goal should be to identify and explain any geographic patterns related to your topic.
Ten equal prizes of $100 will be awarded for the five best HS and five best MS projects in the state. Schools can submit up to five projects to the state competition, and states submit to Esri up to ten awardees (up to 5 HS, up to 5 MS), with one project each at HS and MS tagged for a final level of competition. From across the nation, one HS project and one MS project will each earn a trip to the 2020 Esri Education Conference in San Diego, CA, during Esri’s 50th year celebration.
