Welcome to the 22nd year of the Canadian Geographic Challenge. With each passing year we continue to be amazed by the talent, dedication and knowledge of Canadian students who go above and beyond to push the limits of their abilities with the Challenge.
This year thousands of students in grades 4-10 will compete to be the best, test their geographic knowledge and skills, and better understand the world that they live in. They will be asked about human, physical and historical geography, will apply their knowledge to real-life situations and truly discover where geography can take them.
Free registration will open in October for the 2016-2017 Challenge. Be sure to check back and register then. If you want to know more about the Challenge and begin to prepare, explore the Study Tips page and sign up to be a member of Canadian Geographic Education.
On June 5, 2016, Jack Cheng was named National Champion, taking home the grand prize of $5,000. Who will be named this year’s National Champion?
