NEW Opportunity!!

Washington State 2023 ArcGIS Online School Competition

This online mapping competition sponsored by Esri, is a great opportunity to engage students in researching a topic of interest, using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and presenting an interesting story to literally a worldwide audience. No coding is required, as students will create configurable applications using their own content.

The competition is open to high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 4-8) students in Washington State and other participating states throughout the country. This is the third year Washington State has participating and we hope to be able to showcase interesting stories about Washington and the talents of our students.
