The Envirothon is a high school competition designed to stimulate, reinforce and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources. Students are tested on their knowledge of soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology and current environmental issues. In addition, the Envirothon encourages cooperative decision-making and team building. While each student on a team is challenged individually to contribute his or her personal best, the score that counts at the end of the competition is the team score. Congratulations to this year’s team for earning 46th in the Area 2 competition. Representing Black River was Nicole Smith, Collin Burnett, William Blicha, Trent Youngeberg and Amanda Mycek. We would like to thank the Cuyahoga and Portage County Soil and Water Conservation Districts for hosting the events.
