ConVal’s Envirothon Team Places 2nd In State Competition

Congratulations to this year’s Envirothon team for placing 2nd overall in the annual state competition which was held virtually from May 21-27. 

Students competed against area schools in four subjects:

  • Forestry
  • Wildlife
  • Aquatics
  • Soils 

Team members also researched and presented to a panel of judges on climate and water-related issues impacting the ConVal region.

Despite not meeting for a full year due to COVID-19, the team still managed to be a formidable opponent. Practices ramped back up in March of 2021, and the team persistently worked to learn and grow over the course of two months.

Team coach and Earth Science teacher Andria Johnson was particularly impressed with the team’s progress in such a short time. “I am so proud of the accomplishments of this team,” said Johnson.  “I am a new coach and this is essentially a new team, and to have come so far so fast is just amazing.  2nd place overall is fantastic, and I cannot wait to see what this team can do next season!” 

This was the 29th consecutive year that ConVal has participated in the Envirothon competition. The Envirothon team is always looking for new members, and team meetings will begin again next September.  Contact Andria Johnson (ajohnson@conval.edu) to learn more and join the team.
