Qualified and experienced members of IBGB Learning Society took an initiative to investigate the geography knowledge of students of India. If was surprising that many students could not even locate India on a blank map of the world and Delhi on the blank map of India. Worse were the students between 18years to 24years.
This result is obvious. Geography has taken a back seat to other subjects in the class room for many years. Concerned about this widespread lack of geographic knowledge, IBGB Learning Society organized Geography Olympiad to revive the interest in the subject among the students.
The IBGB Learning Society organized its First and Second National Level Geography Olympiad in
2010-11 and 2011-12. The Olympiad is open to students of class 2 to 4 (sub-junior category), 5 to
7 (junior category), and 8 to 10 (senior category) and is conducted in two steps. Children initially
participate at their respective schools. Gold, Silver, Bronze medals and merit certificates are awarded
to the winners and a certificate of participation is given to all the participants. Students selected on the
basis of cut off marks are invited for National Finals. Top three rankers of each category are awarded
with Laptop, Digital Cameras and Wrist Watches. Society strives to acknowledge the efforts of all the
National Finalists by awarding a Trophy and Certificate.
Our endeavor will surely be successful and together we can make it true.
