County high schools to participate in Envirothon
LAWRENCEVILLE - The Lawrence County Envirothon competition will be held at Lawrence County 4-H Center from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on March 12.

Students from Crawford, Edwards, Lawrence, Richland, and Wabash counties will all be competing to represent the area during state competition in May.

Lawrence County high schools competing include Lawrenceville High School and Red Hill High School.

Five-member teams will conduct research, and engage in problem-solving and hands-on activities. Teams will demonstrate their expertise in the areas of forestry, wildlife, aquatics and soils. A fifth area of the competition is a current environmental issue.

The winning team will advance to the state competition to be held at the 4-H Memorial Camp at Monticello on May 1 and 2. State champions will travel to the national competition at Montana State University, to be held on July 21 through July 26.

The Envirothon began in one county in Pennsylvania in 1979. Today, most U.S. states and Canadian provinces participate in the Envirothon, reaching more than 500,000 students across North America each year.

Envirothon is the largest high school environmental education competition in the United States. In every state, the Envirothon is sponsored by the conservation districts and their state association.

For more information on the 2013 Envirothon, contact Kristie Cooley at the Lawrence County Soil & Water office 943-2621 Ext 3.
