For students: ESRI Young Scholars Award – Send in your StoryMap

unnamed (2).jpg

ESRI asked TU Delft for their students to send in a StoryMap. This request was originally in Dutch, so this post is freely translated into English.

The winner of the Netherlands will receive a certificate and the special ESRI Young Scholars Award. You will receive this award and certificate during the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego (10 -14th of July). Of course ESRI will provide your travels and accommodation during this trip.

Winner 2016
The winner of 2016 was Ken Arts, a student from “HAS Hogeschool in Den Bosch”. Hopefully the winner will be from the TU Delft this year!

Are you interested to participate? ESRI would like to receive your StoryMap and the description of your StoryMap before Friday march 31st 2017. Submission goes through the registration form  (unfortunately this is in Dutch)

The StoryMap should relate to a social issue or a research and consist of beautiful/appealing visualizations. If this map is part of an internship or project a description can be added.

Criteria of the map
What is important?

  • The StoryMap should have an appealing design and look clean
  • The StoryMap should have a mix of content (text, photos, videos and potentially audio)
  • The StoryMap should be understandable and communicate the content in a clear manner
  • The StoryMap should relate to a social issue or research
  • The winning StoryMap has to be developed on a poster

Check-out the ESRI StoryMaps-website for some inspiration

For specific criteria:

  1. Your StoryMap has to be created in one of the ESRI StoryMap-templates (the template can be adjusted to own preferences)
  2. You can only submit one StoryMap per person
  3. It’s an individual competition, the StoryMap should thus be made by one person
  4. You’re part of the initial Dutch education system
Deadline submission: Friday 31st of March 2017
