Tennessee ArcGIS Online Mapping Contest for Middle and High School Students
Posted on June 4th, 2018

​Students and teachers from across Tennessee recently participated in the second annual
mapping contest with topics ranging from mapping local greeways to confronting our past.
Utilizing ESRI’s ArcGIS Online platform, students collected and created data for projects that
focused on individual research questions. Students incorporated their data into interactive
maps and websites to provide context, supplemental information, and their methodology to
viewers.

We would like to recognize the students and teachers who participated in the contest this year
and acknowledge the hours of work that go into collecting and creating data, developing maps,
and producing supplemental material like videos and pictures.

For the contest, students participated in either the middle school or high school division, with
the top 5 maps in each division awarded $100 from ESRI. The 1st place map in each division will be submitted to ESRI for judging at the national level with the top overall team in each division receiving an invitation to attend the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, California this summer.

We are pleased to announce the top 5 maps and the first-place winners of the first ArcGIS
Online Mapping Contest for Tennessee Middle and High School Students.
