On the eve of the 80th anniversary of Krasnoyarsk Krai the municipal stage of the game called "Young geographer" took place in Siberian Federal University. Intellectual competition was organized by lecturers and students of the Department of Geography and Krasnoyarsk regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society.

The game was attended by eight teams from Leninsky, Oktyabrsky, Zheleznodorozhny and Sverdlovsk rayons of Krasnoyarsk. The most active participants were Leninsky and Oktyabrsky rayons.

During the four-round competition the participants responded to 40 difficult questions which required deep knowledge of the geography of the region, natural and economic objects, as well as interesting facts about the region.

Young geographers know the answers to such questions as: which HPP of Krasnoyarsk Krai is the northernmost in the world, the names of which rivers and lakes coincide and where are these rivers and lakes, where in Krasnoyarsk Krai mushrooms are higher then trees, which island of the region can be put on feet and which Polkan never barks.
