Fall 2019 is a crucial period for redistricting reform in Pennsylvania. Are you ready to enter your map into DTL's next competition? Here's how.
WHAT’S THE SAME?
The congressional competition is still on DistrictBuilder, drawing 17 districts. You can get started here.
The Youth and Higher Education divisions will award regional prizes ($500 for 1st place; $250 for 2nd place; plus honorable mentions). The statewide grand prize winners from each division will be chosen from regional honorees and receive $5,000.
The public can choose the People’s Choice champion from statewide finalists.
The Youth and Higher Education regional competitions will be split between two regions instead of three: eastern and western.
All entries in the adult division will automatically go to the statewide competition. There will be no regional awards in this division.
The adult statewide grand prize will be $2,000. Second prize will be $1,000.
WHAT’S NEW? STATE LEGISLATIVE MAPPING COMPETITION
Draw the Lines has partnered with Dave’s Redistricting App so Pennsylvanians can draw state Senate and state House maps on his web-based platform.
DTL will award two (2) $1,000 grand prizes and $500 2nd place prizes in the state legislative competition, one each for the State House and State Senate categories.
Awards will be judged by the DTL statewide judging panel, using the same rubric as the congressional mapping competition.
You can submit a map to the competition from our website.
Deadline for all submissions is 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 12.
