Geography Monstrosity (Geo Monstrosity, GM) was a vanity tournament composed entirely of geography questions. It usually ran as a side event to one of the high school national championships (typically the Friday evening before HSNCT). It featured 20-point superpowers, 15-point powers, and no minus-fives.
The first Geography Monstrosity was edited by George Stevens, and directed by Bryce Durgin and Katy Peters, who won praise for organizing and running the tournament on short notice. Subsequent editions have typically been edited and directed by Jeff Hoppes, and featured optional packet submission.
