Young Geographer of the Year
What makes the Arctic unique? This was the question answered by thousands of geography students across the country, but it was one of our own that won this prestigious geographical prize.
Eve, a Year 13 student taught by Mr Scott and Mrs Walker, scooped up the 16-18 Young Geographer of the Year award at a special ceremony held at the Royal Geographical Society’s London headquarters. Eve entered an essay that explored how the Arctic has increasingly changed, with a particular emphasis on its indigenous people. Despite tough competition from entries from hundreds of different schools, Eve’s essay stood out to impress geographers and experts specialising in Arctic research.
The Geography Department at St George’s Academy is extremely proud of Eve’s incredible achievement. She is a natural and intuitive geographer, who sets a great example to all St George’s students of what they can achieve.
