The competition was open to university students in the independent English-speaking countries of the Caribbean and the citizens/students of those countries studying abroad. Students were given the opportunity to tell their story with GIS while encouraging spatial thinking and promoting research. This competition was designed to increase awareness and improve geospatial capacity toward sustainable development. Students were instructed to focus on topics surrounding the economy, society, or the environment with a special encouragement around submissions dealing with the topics of urban planning, sustainable development, health, agriculture, culture, climate, and disasters of all kinds. 

Entries were submitted in StoryMap format and judged by a diverse panel of GIS industry, government, and educational professionals.
