National Geographic World Championship

National Geographic advised in September 2014 that they would not be running the World Championship in 2015. Congratulations to the Australian team on their 5th place at the 2013 National Geographic World Championship held in St Petersburg, Russia, from July 27 to August 1 2013. Representing Australia were: Jamie Abel, Shore School, Sydney; Tom Butler, Northern Beaches Secondary College Manly, Sydney; Garry Zhu, Camberwell Grammar School, Melbourne. These photos are from the 2011 World Championship. Run your mouse over a photo to learn more, or click on it for a larger version.

The Australians had a fantastic time and applaud the National Geographic Society and Google for their commitment to promoting geographical education and encouraging friendly relations between young people of different cultures.
