The Young Geographer of the Year competition is run in partnership with Geographical and is kindly supported by Esri UK, Ordnance Survey, Stanfords and Philip’s.
The 2018 competition provided students with the opportunity to explore the geography of the Arctic, and to discover what makes this polar environment so unique.
The Arctic is an environment like no other. It is home to four million people, supports an abundance of uniquely adapted wildlife, and plays an important role in moderating the world's climate.
However, the Arctic is a dynamic environment that is undergoing change. In an exploration of the Arctic, pupils considered how these changes affected not only the Arctic itself, but also the rest of the world. Pupils considered both the human and physical geography of the Arctic, including its environmental, political, social, cultural, and economic distinctiveness.
The competition has four categories: Key Stage 2 (students aged 7-11), Key Stage 3 (students aged 11-14), Key Stage 4 or GCSE (students aged 14-16) and Key Stage 5 or A Level (students aged 16-18). The Society encouraged schools to run their own local semi-finals before entering their top-placed entries into the national competition.
