Regional and National Geography Olympiads

Excitement fills the air as schools across Nigeria battle for the regional trophy that qualifies them for the National Olympiad. The very best emerge from the National Geography Olympiad. These students represent 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.

Importance of Geography

Geography is the study of the earth, such as places, landforms, people and processes by which the earth changes over time. The knowledge of geography provides a solid foundation for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The proper and early introduction of students to geography will expand their career opportunities in fields that are rewarding. Students are exposed to the preliminary concepts of geography as a social-studies subject at the Junior Secondary School (J.S.S) and the actual teaching of geography in Senior Secondary School (S.S.S) in Nigeria. This forms the basis for the Geography Green School Project, an initiative to promote geography education in secondary schools across Nigeria for sustainable development.

Strategic Partnerships

Our ultimate goal is to position geography education as a subject of choice in Nigeria through the Geography Olympiad.

  1. Stimulate active interest in geographical and environmental studies among young people.
  2. Contribute positively to debate about the importance of geography as a senior secondary school subject by drawing attention to the quality of geographical knowledge, skills and interests among young people.
  3. Facilitate social contacts between young people from different countries and in doing so contribute to the understanding between nations.
  1. 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.
