Are you Brookfield’s Geographer of the Year​​​​​​​?

The Young Geographer of the Year is the Royal Geographical Society’s national competition which recognises the outstanding work of the next generation of geographers.

For this year’s Young Geographer of the Year competition the Royal Geographical Society are asking young people to create an annotated map which reveals how their lives have been shaped by the Covid pandemic.

They are interested to see maps which illustrate and describe:

  • Which local human and physical features they and their family used during the pandemic

  • Why some places were especially important to young people

  • The places they couldn’t visit and why

  • If the pandemic has led to them experiencing any new places in their local area

  • How the pandemic changed their geographical understanding of their local area

  • Any links which ‘stretch’ their maps to other places which were also important to them during the pandemic.

For full details of the competition and how to enter, please see the below attachment.
