Children's Map Competition 2021

Children's Maps 2021

NZCS is proud to host the New Zealand Children's Map Competition

Competition Objectives

The objectives of the competition are to promote children’s creative representation of the world, to enhance their cartographic awareness, and to make them more conscious of their environment.

The competition judges will select up to six maps to be New Zealand’s entries for the international Barbara Petchenik Children’s Map Competition 2021. This competition will be held in conjunction with the International Cartographic Conference in Florence, Italy, 14-18 December 2021.

Thanks to all of the students who entered the 2021 New Zealand Children’s Map Competition! We received 84 entries from 15 schools and one early learning centre.  The judges awarded First, Second, and Third places in age categories 9-12 Years and 13-15 Years, and First place in Under 6 Years. Six of the winning maps will represent New Zealand in Florence.

The amazingly creative winning maps can be seen on the 2021 Winners page. Winning students will receive some great sponsor prizes so a big thank you to our generous sponsors.
