County SWCD to play host to regional contest
NOBLESVILLE - Registration is now open for high school aged students to sign up to participate in this spring's Central Region Envirothon contest played host by the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District.
The Central Region contest is scheduled for March 22, 2018, at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds. Regional contests will be conducted around the state in March and the top teams in each regional contest will then compete at the Indiana State Envirothon in April. The winning team at the state contest will then represent Indiana at the National Conservation Foundation Envirothon Contest in July at Idaho State University.
Envirothon is a fun way for high school aged students to learn about the environment and the issues facing current and future generations. Teams are comprised of five students in grades 9 - 12 and each team must have at least one adult coach. Each team will answer questions and study resource problems in five environmental areas (soils/land use, aquatic ecology, wildlife, forestry, and a current environmental issue). Teams may consist of members from a variety of organizations: clubs at high schools (environment, green, agriculture, science, and academic clubs), Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts, home schooled students, and 4-H Clubs.
The deadline for Envirothon coaches to register their team for the Central Region contest is Friday, February 23, 2018. For more information, visit www.hamiltonswcd.org/envirothon.html or contact Ginger Davis at (317) 773-2181.
