Canadian Geographic - - YOUR SOCIETY - —Marc-an­dré Dubois

Four Cana­dian high school stu­dents proved they’re among the world’s best and bright­est young ge­og­ra­phers, claim­ing five medals at the 15th In­ter­na­tional Ge­og­ra­phy Olympiad this sum­mer in Que­bec City — the first time Canada has hosted the com­pe­ti­tion and the first time Cana­di­ans have com­peted. Stu­dents from 43 coun­tries par­tic­i­pated in the event, held at the Univer­sité Laval. Each mem­ber of the Cana­dian team won a medal: Cal­gary’s Jack Cheng took sil­ver, while Mal­haar Mo­harir of Toronto and Ben Wood­ward and Zhong­tian Wang, both of Lon­don, Ont., earned bronze, and the team won sil­ver in the poster com­pe­ti­tion for their project on the Grand Banks of New­found­land.
