Teachers and students: make sure to enter our 2022 Young Geographer of the Year competition by Monday 3 October.
Young Geographer of the Year is the Society’s annual competition which recognises the outstanding work of the next generation of geographers, from primary years to A Level.
The theme this year is ‘Where, how and why’. We are looking for entries that give a geographical overview of a place a young person might like to visit, how they would travel there, and why.
Whether the place is local or much further afield, we would like pupils to share their understanding of its key physical and human features; how they would get there and what reasons they might have for the type/s of transport used; and why the place is geographically interesting, important, or meaningful to them.
KS2, KS3 and KS4 students should produce an A3 size poster. This can be produced digitally, or handmade then sent in electronically via a scanned copy/photograph. KS5 students should produce an Esri StoryMap containing no more than 1,500 words.
All entries need to be submitted online – details on criteria and how to submit are here. Submissions can be made by individual students or teachers. The deadline is 5.00pm on Monday 3 October.
Young Geographer of the Year is is offered in partnership with Geographical magazine to inspire young people to widen their geographical horizons.
