Delaware Envirothon Seeks Teams and Team Leaders

Posted:

DOVER, Del. – Calling all high school students: The Delaware Envirothon seeks teams for its 20th season.

Any high school students representing a public school, private school, charter school, home school, Scouts or 4-H is eligible to participate.

The Delaware Envirothon, sponsored by the Delaware Association of Conservation Districts, provides challenging environmental education and hands-on instruction with real-world professionals in their fields. Teams will compete for college scholarships and cash awards next April at the competition site in Sussex County.

The first training workshop for the upcoming Envirothon will take place October 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Blackbird State Forest Education Center, just north of Smyrna. The workshop will focus on soils and forestry tools and procedures.

The second will be held on November 8 at the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension Office in Dover. This workshop will feature the 2015 special topic of urban/community forestry.

The final training workshop will be held on Jan. 24, 2015, at the St. Jones Reserve in Dover and will cover aquatic ecology, air quality, and wildlife.

A public presentation component is also part of the competition.

The winning team will go on to represent Delaware at the National Conservation Foundation's Envirothon, to be held from July 27 to Aug. 3, 2015, at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri.

To register for the workshops, become a sponsor or receive more information about the program, contact Rick Mickowski at 302-832-3100 ext. 113. Additional information about the Delaware Envirothon can be found online at www.delawareenvirothon.org.
