International Geography Olympiad
Hong Kong, China
30th July to 5th August, 2019.
Geography Olympiad is an annual event where Secondary School students between the age of 16 and 19 years from countries around the world compete and show-case their knowledge and skills in Geography education. Each participating country organizes a regional and a national competition as pre-qualification for the International Geography Olympiad (iGeo).
The Geography Olympiad consists of three parts:
1. Written 2. Multimedia 3. Substantial fieldwork requiring observation.
The third part leads to cartographic representation and geographical analysis.
Excitement was in the air as schools across Nigeria settled to battle for the trophy as well as for the joy of representing the country at the International Geography Olympiad (iGeo). These students represented months and months of hard work, diligent preparation efforts and a strong determination not only to showcase their knowledge of geography but to win the Olympiad gold. The very best have emerged from the 6 Regional Geography Olympiads and are now qualified to represent Nigeria at the International Geography Olympiad.
The International Geography Olympiads are held under the auspices of the INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHICAL UNION(IGU), through the IGU Olympiad Task Force.
