On December 14, the US Geography Olympiad debuted the B Set version of the National Qualifying Exam for the 2013-2014 competition year. This took place at the Northern Illinois site (St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights) where Anton Karpovich, the defending varsity national champion, kicked off B Set in style with the second perfect score of the year! Our B Set exam has been designed to be slightly easier than the C Set version, though that in no way diminishes Anton’s accomplishment as just the third student overall to score a perfect 100 in USGO history. Interestingly, the first ever perfect score came at this same site last year too. Happy holidays to everyone from the USGO, and good luck as our season kicks into high gear in January 2014, with over 20 National Qualifying Exam sites planned!
