We are pleased to announce that after careful consideration, we are now allowing students who are in second grade in the North American grade system (or the international equivalent) to compete at the 2024 International Geography Championships. We do advise that parents help students of this age carefully plan their event schedule so as not to overextend themselves. But we do believe that second graders can have a great time competing in Vienna this summer as well, and we welcome their participation at IGC 2024!
