Congratulations to Kevin Li of Westview High School in San Diego, CA and to Karan Menon of John Adams Middle School in Edison, NJ for being the respective Varsity and Junior Varsity 2015 US Geography Olympiad National Champions!

Median National Qualifiers:

Click here to download the PDF file which shows which students qualified for the National Championships on the basis of having a higher score than the National Median Score for their division on the version of the National Qualifying Exam they took. The students in the attached file did not originally qualify, as their scores were not above the medians at the site where they took the version of the Exam that is listed for their name. Some of these students may have qualified on a different version of the NQE or at a National Qualifying Quiz Tournament site as well.

Official National Median Scores for 2014-2015:

The Official National Median Scores for the A, B, and C Set versions of the USGO National Qualifying Exam have been calculated and are posted below. If you score exactly at or above these values, then you qualify for the USGO National Championships automatically. We will be getting in touch in the next few days with students whose scores on the NQE did not qualify them originally for Nationals, but did end up above the National Median for their version of the Exam within their division, and hence qualify now.
