The National Geographic Society has organised since 1993 a biennal competition with students from different parts of the world, where they have to answer questions on physical, cultural and economic geography. The 2011 meeting was sponsored by Google and held at their headquarters in Mountain View, California.

This year's competition was won by the Russian team (see picture below). Canada took 2nd place and China was 3rd.
