The 2023-24 edition of the “My California GIS Mapping Showcase and Competition” is the 8th running of this annual event. This exciting statewide opportunity encourages middle (4th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade) students to harness the power of Geographic Information Systems (using free Esri ArcGIS Online software) and get connected with their state by producing an online map that focuses on stories, issues, or ideas that are important to them. Prizes valued at $100 are awarded to the student or student team submitting each of up to 5 projects selected for commendation in each category. One project in each category will be advanced to the national competition.
