Teams from Canada, Poland and the United States will compete Wednesday in the finals of the ninth National Geographic World Championship, an every-other-year competition being held this year in Mexico City.

Fifteen three-member teams from around the world took a written test yesterday, then competed in a geography activity this morning.


The three finalists are the highest-scoring teams on the written and activity rounds.

The championship finals will be held at the National Museum of Anthropology and History.

The defending world champion is Mexico.
