Young Geographer of the Year Competition

What Makes the Arctic Unique?

This year’s competition gave Year 5 and Year 6 pupils the opportunity to explore the geography of the Arctic, and to discover what makes this polar environment so unique.

We were delighted with the announcement of Zariya B as a highly commended winner and Suraya N as the overall national winner in the KS2 (aged 9-11) category.  Earlier this week, the girls and their families attended the awards ceremony at The Royal Geographic Society.  Guest speaker Henry Burgess, head of the NERC Arctic Office, gave a galvanising presentation on climate change.  He congratulated our young geographers on their interest in the Arctic and on their fantastic winning entries.  Well done girls!                                                                                                                        Mrs Bower

When I found out that I was a runner up of the whole competition, I was super amazed and surprised.  I spent a very long time on my research and poster.  It felt like all my hard work had paid off.

I was sure that I would enter the competition as I love geography.  I found out many fascinating facts about the Arctic and pieced these together.  I wanted to create something unique and different, so I wrote a poem.  Pictures of the northern lights and the Arctic inspired me to include artwork as well.  When it was announced that I was the overall national winner, I was really astonished and surprised.  I felt delighted to be asked to the award ceremony.
