Young Geographer of the Year Award

We're taking part in the Young Geographer of the Year Award with the theme of "Where, how and why?"

Where, how and why?

Throughout the pandemic our ability to travel near or afar has been severely limited. This year, to encourage young people to widen their geographical horizons, whether locally or much further afield, the Society is asking pupils where, how and why.

Where? Where might you want to travel to? We’d like you to give a geographical overview of the place you’d like to visit. It doesn’t matter if the place is local to you or much further afield, we’d like you to give its geographical overview and share your understanding of its key physical and human features.

How? How would you get there and what reasons might you give for the type/s of transport you might use? Is the place a short walk away or somewhere that would require transport to take you beyond the UK?

Why? What makes this place geographically interesting, important or meaningful to you?

Entry Requirements

In your entry you should address the criteria of “Where, How and Why?” and be eye-catching, innovative, informative and accurate where you can show off the geography of where you would like to go, how you’d go there and why this particular place. 


  • Must be A3 and completed on paper or on Word, PowerPoint or Publisher.
  • Your work should describe at least 6 geographical features using annotated images, data and diagrams.
  • Include geographical terminology, labelled and appropriate sources. 
  • Be original and independent produced. 


All entries must be handed to Mrs. Leadbeater by the 8th July 2022.

The top 10 entries across all Consilium schools will be entered by subject staff.

Good luck!
