Young Geographer of the Year 2021

Amy in Year 5's entry is highly commended!

Huge congratulations to Amy W in Year 5 whose entry to the RGS Young Geographer of the Year 2021 competition has been highly commended.

For this year’s competition the Royal Geographic Society asked young people to create an annotated map which reveals how their lives have been shaped by the Covid pandemic.

Amy's map illustrates and describes Morley Park and how it became very important to her and her family during lockdown.  It sounds like a wonderful place to have had to escape to! 

The competition winner and highly commended entries will be published in a future Routes issue. Routes is the UK's first open-access, peer-reviewed e-journal written for and by sixth form and undergraduate geographers. Peer-reviewers are expert geography teachers and academics. Publishing in Routes is a mark of geographical distinction. Well done Amy!

Take a look at the 10 creative entries from Year 5 that were shortlisted and submitted to the competition by The Study Prep.
