The Young Geographer of the Year competition is run in partnership with Geographical and is kindly supported by Cotswold Outdoor, Esri UK, Ordnance Survey, Stanfords and Philip’s.
All entries must be submitted electronically, the final deadline for us to receive these will be 5.00pm on the 30 June 2020.
We will notify the winners by end of summer term 2020.
Map, diagram and graph annotations ARE included in the word count. Titles, subtitles, table of contents and references ARE NOT included in the word count. The word limit of 1,500 means that we do not wish any entries to be over 1,500 words, but if entries are slightly under they will not be penalised.
This year we are unable to take entries via post due to the situation around the COVID-19 outbreak. We are asking for all entries to be sent electronically which means those in KS2-KS4 must send their entries as a photo or scan of their posters (please ensure the text on the poster is readable). Alternatively, you can send us an electronic copy of the poster as made in Word, Powerpoint or whichever program you wish to use (please ensure the poster is scaled to A3 size and sent as a PDF if possible). Those in KS5 are being asked to make an Esri story map, these should also be sent in electronically and more information on how to make them can be found here. Entries for all year groups must be sent to email@example.com , if your file is too large to be sent via email please send it using wetransfer to the same email address.
Winners and Highly Commended entrants will be informed of all of the details regarding the Awards Ceremony. The date for the Awards Ceremony will be announced at a later date.
We gladly accept entries from schools outside of the UK.
The competition is not exclusive to RGS-IBG members and anyone who is within the correct age groups are welcome to take part.
All entries must be accompanied by an entry form which is available on our website. If you do not include an entry form your work will not be judged.
Winners and Highly Commended entrants will win an award and a selection of geography prizes.
The question and all of the entry details will be announced in April 2021.
