Young Geographer of the Year 2023 award winner

Huge congratulations to Tamana for winning the KS3 category of the Young Geographer of the Year competition.

The Royal Geographical Society’s Young Geographer of the Year competition is an international award that encourages young people to think creatively and analytically about geographical themes. This year’s theme of ‘A blueprint for the future’ invited entrants to share ideas to address problems in areas such as food production and supply, energy and sustainability, resources, population growth, travel and biodiversity.

Out of around 35,000 ‘blueprints’, 1,000 entries were sent in by schools and 16 young people were chosen for recognition by the Society, with a winner and three highly commended entries selected for each category. We are very proud of Tamana and the scale of her achievement.

The winning entries are displayed on the RGS’s website at

The 2023 winning and highly commended pupils were awarded their certificates by television and radio presenter, Tom Heap, at a ceremony held at the Society on Friday 8 December.
