What is the Geography Challenge?

It’s a fun and challenging competition for Connecticut high school students to test their geographic knowledge, understandings, and skills through a variety of team activities.   Participants compete as a team of 3—5 students from grades 9—12 against other teams from across the state in a daylong series of events centered on a theme.  The theme for 2020 is “GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE” and will include geographic topics such as location, place, region, movement, human / environment interaction, as well as history, science, and current events.
