Are you excited about geography? Register for the Canadian Geographic Challenge and test your geographic skills and knowledge against other students in Canada!

This bilingual competition is open to students in grades 4 to 10 across the country. Students in grades 7 to 10 first compete within their school;* school champions can then compete at the provincial/territorial level and finally at the national level. The deadline to name a school champion is March 1, 2018. (Read the challenge rules here.)

If you are interested in participating, talk to your geography teacher and be sure to prepare for the challenge by reviewing past questions!

*If you are unable to compete through your school, send an email to challenge@cangeoeducation.ca asking for permission to participate in the challenge on your own.
