USGS announced the winners of the Visualize Your Water High School Citizen Science Challenge last Wednesday, the day before Earth Day. It was also National Environmental Education Week.
All of the winning products were story maps, mostly map journals, but I saw one map series. Students could use any software on their projects, despite some initial confusion. Emily Read, at the USGS Office of Water Information shared further details on the compeititon:
- There were just over 100 submissions
- All of them used Esri technology
