Making the World Just a Little Bit Smaller

  • Apr 18, 2016


Earlier this year, we put out a call to adventure and high-school students answered—from the United States and Latin America, young people raised their hands for a chance to win an all-expense-paid National Geographic Student Expediton of their choice, courtesy of DIRECTV and Nat Geo Mundo Explorer.

And we have our winners!

Hailing from Alabama, Ecuador and Uruguay, our explorers will be spending this summer in such diverse places as Tanzania, Peru and Nepal, doing things like tutoring children, rebuilding homes that were damaged in an earthquake, and experiencing the wonders of Machu Picchu and Mount Kiliminjaro.

Congratulations to all!

Check out this blog post for more on our lucky winners and their big plans for summer. To learn more about National Geographic Student Expeditions, simply visit their official website.

And be sure to follow us on Twitter. We’ll keep you up-to-date on other great opportunities and free educational resources.
