The 16th International Geography Olympics were held in Hong Kong over the summer between July 30 and August 5 this year. The Turkish Geography Society and ENKA Schools selected students for the Turkish team and our Social Sciences Department Head, Mesut Süzer, was the leader of Turkish Team, escorting them to the event in Hong Kong.
Students from more than 40 countries took part in the olympiads, competing in challenges such as written exams, a multi-media exam, and a field test.
Countries were represented by national teams of four students. Mete H., Murat A., Burçin Bahar G. and Çağan A. represented our country.
During the Olympics, the students had the opportunity to introduce their countries as well as get to know Hong Kong and the other participating countries.
We are proud to announce that among the 172 participants, a student from the Turkish team, Mete H., from TED Ankara College, won the bronze medal.
We would like to thank Mr. Süzer and the team for their hard work.
