Alex Trebek Medal for Geographic Literacy

2005 Recipient - Dick Mansfield

The recipient of the 2005 Geographic Literacy Award is Dick Mansfield, from Kingston, Ontario. Dick’s enthusiasm for geography has been apparent to everyone he has had contact with over the years and this enthusiasm has been described by teachers as contagious, causing many teachers to become involved in teaching and improving geographic education. He played a major role in the creation of the Great Canadian Geography Challenge and was a key player in the development of the Canadian Geographic Education, which he chaired through its early years.
