PhD Student Leanne Milner was the winner of the Royal Geographical Society Rex Walford Award 2012 for PGCE students and newly qualified geography teachers (NQT), reflecting the late Rex Walford’s passion for training new geography teachers. This was awarded for the best set of teaching resources, scheme of work or lesson plans linked to this year's Young Geographer competition.

Leanne's entry was a series of lessons and scheme of work based on the theme 'walk the world'. Which involved making links between Leicester and Olympic competitions countries. She planned a field exercise and used GIS to analyse the results. The teaching was aimed at ks4 students in geography.

Commenting on the winners, Steve Brace, Head of Education at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), said: “I am delighted with the quality of entries this year, and was particularly impressed to see our young geographers providing such insightful and knowledgeable information links between their local area and Olympic and Paralympic participating nations, and how they influence the geography.”
