The best and brightest geography whizzes attended this year’s National Geographic Geo Championships at National Geographic Society Headquarters in Washington, D.C. In the team competition called the Geo Challenge, aligned with National Geographic’s Planet or Plastic? initiative, Team Navigators, comprised of four fifth graders from New York, took home the $25,000 first prize.
Listen, only on Max Out Time, to an exclusive interview with Jeremiah Pierre and Victor Jimenez of the winning team. We discussed practicing for the Geo Championships, visiting Nat Geo and helping the earth’s ecosystems.
