On April 24, 23 teams participated in the Council Grove Regional Envirothon, which was attended by more than two hundred competitors, team advisors, parents, U.S. Army “solider buddies,” NRCS staff, two KWF board members, and others. Teams attended presentations in the morning and were tested in the afternoon. Cold weather prompted organizers to move the event from Canning Creek Cove at the Council Grove Reservoir to the Morris County 4-H Building.
The Kansas Envirothon is an outdoor environmental high school competition where students learn and are tested on soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatics, and a current issue. This year, all teams are required to compete in oral presentations over the topic of grasslands.
The competition results are as follows.
Clay Center High School
White City High School
Wakefield High School
Mission Valley High School
