CHS Competes In Nebraska STATE ENVIROTHON For The First Time!

(Submitted by Maribeth Moore-sponsor)
To watch more about the Envirothon click on KNOP news clip.
http://www.knopnews2.com/home/headlines/Students-Compete-At-State-Envirothon-Competition-301741351.html

Members included Murphy Churchill, Toni Doescher, Clay Madsen, Brooke Roes and Greta Welch.

On April 30th, 2015 students from CHS competed at Camp Comeca in Cozad at the State Envirothon.

The mission of the North American Envirothon is to develop knowledgeable skilled and dedicated citizens who have an understanding of natural resources and are willing and prepared to work towards achieving and maintaining a balance between the quality of life and the quality of the environment.

It is accomplished by developing in young people an understanding of the principles and practices of natural resource management and ecology and through practice dealing with complex resource management decisions. More and more careers are being created that deal with the environment. This is an excellent opportunity to give your students some additional background in the environment and exposure to environmental careers.

What makes the Envirothon different from other extra-curricular activities students already participate in? The Nebraska Envirothon competition gives students the chance to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it to life. Students are given the chance to interact with resource professionals who use the knowledge they gained in high school and college every day in their career. The Envirothon shows students the link between academics and the business.

The competition was distributed between Aquatic Ecology, Wildlife, Urban Forestry, Policy, Soils, Range, and a Special Topic Management Plan.  This year’s topic focused on Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). CHS students placed 3rd in Special Topics Presentation and Policy, 4th in Soils, 5th in Range, Wildlife, and Forestry, and 7th in Aquatics and overall.

Special recognition goes out to Sheri Daniels (UNWNRD), Tony Perlinski (CSC), Fred McCartney
(NFS), Amy Seiler (USFS), and Shelley Steffl/Katy (NGP) for taking time to help prepare our students.  Go Cardinals!
