Five Rivers Resource Conservation & Development Council hosted their annual Regional Envirothon on April 23rd . This year’s event as held at the Humphrey’s County Fairgrounds in Erin, Tenn. with 14 teams participating, which was great!
The Envirothon teams are tested on their knowledge of aquatics, forestry, soil, wildlife and one current environmental issue (which this year was Urban Forestry). The Envirothon is designed to promote greater awareness to natural resources and environmental issues.
The winner of the Five Rivers Regional Envirothon for 2015 is Montgomery Bell Academy Team 1, coached by Chris Bullington; 2nd place went to Montgomery Bell Academy Team 2, coached by Chris Spiegel; and 3rd place went to Stem Academy at Kenwood, coached by Warren Everett.
A trophy was given to the top place team and ribbons were given out to the top three place teams in each category.
The Regional Envirothon is part of a competition across Tennessee to yield top teams that can then go on to compete in the State Envirothon, which was held May 13th & 14th at Clyde York 4-H Camp in Crossville. The Five Rivers RC&D Regional Winner, Montgomery Bell Academy Team 1 placed second in this event—way to go!!
The Five Rivers Resource Conservation & Development Council appreciates the dedicated teachers and volunteers that make it possible for the students to participate in the Envirothon and exposing them to a wide range of career choices by meeting environmental professionals who represent various branches of the government and private enterprise.
