The Connecticut High School Geography Challenge is a statewide, interscholastic academic team competition that will be held at The University of Connecticut in Storrs on Tuesday, May 16. The all-day competition is 9 AM—3 PM and cycles school teams comprised of 3—5 students in grades 9—12 through 3 morning events: map reading, problem solving, and modified orienteering or a GPS activity. After a lunch provided by hosting CT Geographic Alliance, all school teams will compete in the afternoon Geography Bowl in the Dodd Center.
