Indiana Envirothon is a contest where an in-class curriculum is combined with hands-on field experiences to demonstrate the role people have in important environmental issues. Envirothon is an exciting, fun way for high school students to learn about the environment and the issues facing current and future generations. Teams of five students (grades 9-12), representing a school or organization, compete at Indiana Envirothon contests by answering questions and by studying resource problems in each of the five environmental areas which include: soils/land use, aquatic ecology, wildlife, forestry, and a current environmental issue. This year Salem FFA placed first in the South-central region and will be participating in the state contest. The team that placed first consisted of; Chloey Sabens, Aiden Minton, Jacob Rose, Haylie Walker, and Zion Dunaway.
For the state contest, the members had to write a research paper and make a video presentation over an integrated water management plan to address water resource management in our community. Results of the state competition will be announced on April 30th.
