NUS High School Attains 1 Silver at the 11th International Geography Olympiad 2014

The International Geography Olympiad (iGeo) is an annual competition for the best 16 to 19 year old geography students from all over the world. Students chosen to represent their countries are the very best, chosen from thousands of students who participate enthusiastically in their own National Geography Olympiads. The iGeo consists of three parts: a written test, a multimedia test and substantial fieldwork requiring observation, leading to cartographic representation and geographical analysis. The programme also includes poster presentations by teams, cultural exchanges, and time for students to get to know their fellow students and explore the host city.  The International Geography Olympiad is jointly organised by the Polish Geographical Society which have been organising Polish Geography Olympiad for the last 40 years and the Pedagogical University of Cracow.  It was held from 12-18 August 2014 in Krakow, Poland.  This is the first time a student from NUS High School was selected to join the Singapore Team in iGeo 2014. 

Results:

Wilson Chua Wei Cheng of M14508 was awarded an individual Silver medal.

The Singapore team of 4 students was ranked top in iGeo 2014.
