The Young Geographer of the Year is the Society’s annual competition which recognise the outstanding work of the next generation of geographers. With its age ranges spanning the primary years to A Level the competition encourages thoughtful and creative answers to the competition’s theme which is set each year.
The Society encourages schools to run their own in-house competition and then send their top 10 entries into the national competition. The Young Geographer competition has been running for over 20 years and in 2019 over 15,000 young people took part.
This year’s Young Geographer of the Year competition gives young people the chance to explore the potential that geography holds. Although we might all be confined to our homes, and doing #geographyathome, we are asking young people to explore their wider geographical horizons by providing entries to our Young Geographer of the Year competition and explore the geography of 'The world beyond my window'.
