Although the book is intended to be a study guide for participation in the national contest that boasts a $25,000 scholarship, it also introduces the reader to the world at large. The small book is filled with charts, maps and diagrams. The tips section presents ideas on how to prepare for the contest that can easily be applied to any testing situation. Activities that help the reader to understand the physical, political, and environmental issues are included. Questions and answers from past contests are included plus twenty-two pages of supplemental resources. This 126-page book is packed with great information for classroom use. Teachers can adapt the contest format to a classroom format and make use of all of this information. This paperback should be in all middle school social studies classrooms. 2005, National Geographic Publishers, and Ages 8 to 14.
