Organised by Asian Geographic Magazines Pte Ltd, the ASIAN Geographic Hot Soup Challenge is an annual event that sets out on a mission to quiz kids across the island on their knowledge of Asia in subjects such as history, politics, the environment and geography.
Over the years, the Asian Geographic Hot Soup Challenge has received increasing support from secondary schools all over Singapore. We had a record number of teams in 2012, with a whooping 80 mixed teams (of four students each) participating from more than 100 regional institution.
We were honoured to have Member of Parliament MR BAEY YAM KENG as our 2015 Guest of Honour in 2015. MR VIKRAM NAIR, presented a speech on “Singapore: A Gateway To Asia” during the Hot Soup Challenge in 2014. In 2013, late president MR S R NATHAN attended as the Guest of Honour and spoke about the importance of the younger generation preserving Asian heritage and culture. Parliamentary speaker MR MICHAEL PALMER graced the occasion as Guest of Honour in 2012.
This year, the Asian Geographic Hot Soup Challenge is back with yet another fun-filled and exciting showdown! Students will be pitted against each other to clinch the Asian Geographic Hot Soup Challenge 2017 championship title.
Students (ages 12 to 17) from across Singapore will be tested on their knowledge of Asia on topics such as history, politics, environmental issues and geography.
Participants will also get to meet and greet our distinguished Guest of Honour, and listen to a series of educational talks from several inspirational guest speakers.
