The first Ron Cooke Award has been awarded to Gregory Pearson for his A Level Independent Investigation An investigation into the form and nature of scree slopes on the North side of the Ogwen Valley.
The award, which is supported by eminent physical geographer and former President of the Society Sir Ron Cooke, recognises outstanding achievement in the A Level Independent Investigation (also known as the NEA). Gregory, who studies at St Paul’s Catholic College, Burgess Hill, will be presented with his award as part of our medal and award ceremony at the Society on 3 June.
On receiving his award, Gregory said: “Thank you very much to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), it is a great honour to receive this award, especially for a research project that I enjoyed so much."
