SCAG is inviting college and university students in the region an opportunity to conceptualize, create, and submit ArcGIS StoryMaps using SCAG’s open data. This is a meaningful way to tell a story or provide insight, showcase plans and projects, engage supporters and stakeholders, illustrate the possibilities of data, and highlight the usefulness of open data at the regional level.
The 2021 Student Showcase will be a virtual StoryMap competition with two award categories: Innovation and Planning. An internal staff of planning professionals will evaluate the projects and select four winners.
In all, there will be a total of $6,000 awarded (one $2,000 first place prize and one runner-up $1,000 prize each per category).
Want to learn more about ArcGIS StoryMaps? Attend the Toolbox Tuesday on StoryMapping: Transforming Data Into Interactive Stories on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 10 a.m. Attendance is encouraged but not required. Entrants may also review meeting materials that will be posted online following the training to participate.
