Announcing the Winners of Esri’s New Global Content Challenge

Esri’s new Global Content Challenge contest, engaging students all over the world, is proud to announce the winners! With the power of Esri content at their disposal, students told their own compelling scientific stories using the Esri Story Map Journal app. Entrants used their own geographic analyses, visualizations, predictive models, and more to explore a variety of scientific themes.

The contest was open from August to November and Esri was happy to receive ~550 registrations from students in nearly 60 countries, with 70 actual submissions. A distinguished international panel of judges chose projects that best exemplified the spirit of the contest: unleashing the power of Esri’s Living Atlas of the World content.

Winners were judged in the three categories of Land, Ocean, and Population:

LAND

OCEAN

POPULATION

We will be featuring these Story Map Journal apps at the 2017 Esri Federal GIS Conference, the 2017 Esri Education GIS Conference and other events, as well as in various social media outlets.

Congratulations, and a huge thanks to all who participated. We hope to see you again next year!
