For this year’s Geoweek competition people were asked to make a map of their community.

The map could be at any scale and how they defined ‘community’ was up to them to decide. It could even be a fantasy map, a treasure map and demonstrate any kind of information.

Maps had to have a title and short explanation of the map including a description of the community. They were judged on originality, design, clarity of information and presentation.  Entrants were encouraged to use any type of material they wished as long as it was not computer generated.

​There were two individual prizes and a prize for the best represented school or institution. A selection of maps will be chosen for display at the annual Conference of Irish Geographers which will take place Dublin in May 2016.

Ordnance Survey Ireland were delighted to support this competition by sponsoring the prize. Congratulations to all concerned.

The Winners were:

•    Sarah Miskella – Ramsgrange Community College (First Place: Prize OSI Then and Now Map of Ramsgrange Area)
•    Sarah nic Eoin, Lauren Ní¬ Cheallaigh agus Aoife Nic Eoin, (Second Place – Prize OSI Then and Now Map of Spiddeal Area)
