A five-member team of students from Carroll County, named Venturing Crew 202, is the winner of the 24th annual Maryland Envirothon-an outdoor natural resources competition that challenges students to identify and categorize living resources, perform soil surveys and solve other complex natural resource issues. More than 100 challengers from 18 counties across Maryland took part in this year's competition. The event was held June 18-19 at the Camp Pecometh in Queen Anne's County.
Learn More About This Years Winning Team
Envirothon is a fun and exciting way for high school students in grades 9-12 to learn about the natural world around us. Envirothon teams are made up of five students and study Maryland's natural resources over the course of the school year. The first wave of competitions begins in the spring with local teams competing for the county Envirothon title. The county winner advances to the statewide Maryland Envirothon. This 2 day competition is usually held in June and features a number of outdoor activies, including night hikes, campfire chats and wildlife demonstrations, along with additional training in all five resource areas. The winner of the Maryland Envirothon earns the right to represent the state at the Canon Envirothon.
