  • Each winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and People’s Choice) will also have their initial certification fee waived if the application is submitted within one year of the date the winners are announced. Current GISPs will have their renewal fees waived at their next recertification date.
  • Map submittal earns / qualifies for 1 point under the Contribution to the Profession category.

All three of last year’s winners have been exhibited at conferences and in poster contests around the country. Two of last year’s winners have been included in the soon to be published Esri Map Book, earning them points for published maps in the Contribution to the Profession section of the GISP application.
