Fancy winning a prize !

Calling all KES pupils...

Young Geographer of the Year Competition

The theme this year is "Explore your World"...

You need to explore this theme, and there are lots of different formats that the work can take.

Click the link to go the GEOGRAPHICAL MAGAZINE and find out more.

We want you to carry out a project that involves you exploring the world around you. The project must be completed somewhere in the UK, and must involve you getting out into the real world and making a geographical investigation – it could be a survey of your local streets or a study of a stretch of coastline. We want you to bring geography alive and show how it helps us to understand the world in which we live.

Your entry can take whatever form you think is most appropriate – be it a written report, a short video film, a photographic essay, an annotated map, an audio file or a mix of all of these. The important thing is that you get out of the classroom, away from your computer screen and into the outside world.

And what are the prizes ?
