New Jersey Mapping Competition open to all middle school and high school students!
Maps contain a wealth of data which can be analyzed to answer all types of spatial questions related to science, social studies, language arts, etc. Students are empowered when they can create their own maps showing relationships among data of their interest. We are pleased to announce a contest to create New Jersey-themed online maps, using ESRI’s freely available ArcGIS Online platform. Teachers: Encourage your students to learn some online mapping skills and create a story map using New Jersey content.
This competition is part of a national mapping competition sponsored by ESRI, the maker of ArcGIS. Students may work alone or in pairs to create their maps, and a school may submit up to 5 of their best maps to be judged at the state level. New Jersey may award up to ten Amazon gift cards of $100 each for the top high school and middle school maps ($100 per team, max of 5 high school and 5 middle school). The top map from New Jersey will be submitted to the national competition. Winners of that competition will be invited to California to receive their award. Story Maps must be submitted by Monday May 10, 2021. For more information about the contest, visit https://tinyurl.com/2021njgiscompetition
