Schoolchildren from Petrozavodsk, Kondopoga and other cities and regions of Karelia took part in the Olympiad.

The tasks of the Olympiad were very difficult, they included theoretical, practical and test parts. The first theoretical round contained questions related not only to geography, but also to knowledge of world literature: only knowing the title of the work, it was possible to correctly answer the question about the shape of the relief and describe the geographical features of the formation of the object.

The practical part required not only the ability to solve geographic problems, but also knowledge about the economic situation in Russia and the world. In the third round, students answered test questions.

It should be noted that the tasks fully revealed the creative potential of students, their erudition and knowledge of the sections of geography. It should be noted that from year to year the assignments become more and more difficult and require in-depth study of the subject. Knowledge of only the school course of geography is not enough to cope with the questions of the Olympiad,

– noted the organizers of the Olympiad.

Only two participants of the regional stage of the Olympiad managed to get a passing score. The jury unanimously recommended them for participation in the final stage of the Olympiad. We hope that the winners will adequately represent our republic at the final stage of the Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren in geography.
