Submit Your Idea for an ArcGIS StoryMap!
The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is excited to announce a major opportunity for college and university students in the region. The 2022 Student Showcase is a storymapping competition that challenges students to think innovatively and compete for cash prizes in two award categories: Best in Show and Audience Awards.
Student participants are invited 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.
Students are instructed to submit abstracts of their projects by Feb. 22, and if selected, SCAG will request an ArcGIS StoryMap to be submitted. 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).
