The Delaware Department of Education, in conjunction with the state's geospatial education community, encourages Delaware middle and high school students to join in Esri's 2021 ArcGIS online competition. Students are challenged to create and share interactive mapping projects using ESRI ArcGIS software. Delaware entrants to this national competition must create a digital map or Storymap that highlights facts and features unique to Delaware.

Esri's 2021 ArcGIS US School Competition is open to high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 6-8) students in the United States. Assistance is available to teachers and students who have limited knowledge of how to create an ArcGIS Storymap or web app. Delaware's top 5 middle and top 5 high school students each will be awarded a $100 cash prize. The state also will select one middle school and one high school entrant to compete nationally. Winners at the national level each will earn a trip to the 2021 Esri Education Summit in San Diego, CA.

The competition closes May 10. Find more information online here.
Email with questions. Here is a press release of last year's winners.
