The International Geography Olympiad (iGeo) is an annual competition for the best 16 to 19-year-old geography students from all over the world. Students that are chosen to represent their countries are the very best, chosen from thousands of students who participate enthusiastically in their own National Geography Olympiads.

Filipino students have shown dominance in recently concluded international competitions such as the International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) in Russia and the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) in Japan.
