Essentials of the mapping competition:

  • Two competitions per year (fall and spring)

  • Each competition differs slightly from the previous one

  • Individuals and teams can win $5,000, or a one of our many smaller regional prizes.

  • Review the judging rules here.

  • Spend some quality time on our Draw a Map page before starting your map.

  • For the Spring 2019 competition, you'll draw 17 congressional districts (reduced from 18 because Pennsylvania will likely lose a district after the 2020 census.)

  • Read about our previous winners.
