The Delaware Department of Education, in conjunction with the state’s geospatial education community, encourages Delaware middle and high school students to join Esri’s 2023 ArcGIS webapp 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 Story map that highlights facts and features unique to Delaware.

Esri’s 2023 ArcGIS School Competition is open to high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 5-8) students in the United States. Assistance is available to teachers and students who have limited knowledge of how to create an ArcGIS Story map or web app. Delaware’s top five middle and top five 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 2023 Esri Education Summit in San Diego, CA.

“I loved meeting with last year’s winners and learning about their projects. They were excited about what they learned and the chance they had to practice real-world skills,” Secretary of Education Mark Holodick said.
