Meet the 2019 Geo Champions!

Registration for next year’s National Geographic GeoBee and National Geographic GeoChallenge will open in August.

The 2019 Geo Championships mark the culmination of the 2018-2019 National Geographic GeoBee and National Geographic GeoChallenge student competitions. This event is part of National Geographic’s mission to teach students about the world and how it works, with the goal of empowering the next generation of geographers, scientists, conservationists and educators—the National Geographic Explorers and changemakers of tomorrow.

This year’s GeoBee Champion is Nihar Janga, an 8th grader from Canyon Ridge Middle School in Austin, Texas. This year’s GeoChallenge Champion team is The Navigators from Flushing Christian School in New York, New York, composed of Victor Jimenez (5th grade), Alex Jun (5th grade), Jeremiah Pierre (5th grade) and Natanel Rozic (5th grade). The Navigators built a model of a device that uses filters to collect plastic debris in order to clean up the Hudson River.
