Mapping Tennessee
TN ArcGIS Online Mapping Contest for Middle and High School Students
Posted on May 23rd, 2017

​Students and teachers from across Tennessee recently participated in the inaugural mapping contest with topics ranging from mapping local habitats to natural hazards. 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.
