Entry from KS3 winner Zahra Khan
The winners of the 2020 Young Geographer of the Year competition have been announced.
Young Geographer of the Year is a national competition run by the Society to encourage pupils to engage with geographical issues. This year’s competition gave pupils the opportunity to explore their wider geographical horizons and the potential that geography holds through the theme: ‘The world beyond my window’.
The Young Geographer of the Year competition recognises the best entries across four categories: Key Stage 2 (pupils aged 9-11); Key Stage 3 (11-14); Key Stage 4/GCSE (14-16); and Key Stage 5/A Level (16-18). Despite the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the judges were very impressed with the range, quality, and number of competition entries received.
The overall category winners are:
9-11 years: Sianna Sutton, St Mary's C of E Primary Academy
11-14 years: Zahra Khan, Brooke Weston Academy
14-16 years: Michael Siani-Davies, Mill Hill County High School
16-18 years: Zoe Henderson, King Edward VI School
The full list of winners and highly commended pupils, along with their entries, are on our website.
The Young Geographer of the Year competition and the Rex Walford Award are run by the Society in conjunction with Geographical magazine and are kindly supported by Esri UK, Ordnance Survey, Philip’s and Cotswold Outdoor.
