It was wonderful to see map submissions again at the WLIA Annual Conference! 47 maps were either submitted virtually or delivered in-person at this year's Map Contest. We are grateful once again to have the sponsorship of Ruekert & Mielke, the volunteer help of numerous Association members, and contributions from numerous others to bring the contest to life!

To view all of the map entries, check out the 2022 WLIA Virtual Map Gallery.
