St. Paul & Aurora Teams Tops At Central Region Envirothon

March 05, 2018

Teams from St. Paul and Aurora High Schools took top honors in the Central Region Envirothon Contest held in conjunction with the District II and VII Agriculture Education Contests at Central Community College in Columbus February 27th.  Both schools scored 127 points at the event sponsored by the Lower Loup and Central Platte Natural Resources Districts.  The contest scorecard can be found here.

The St. Paul #1 team of Marissa Baker, Noah Thede, Bree Carlson, Sierra Smith, and Dalton Jerabek; and the Aurora team of Hunter Brophy, Vianna Smith, Ben Springer, Sydney Dyer and Ellie Wanek both qualify for the state Envirothon contest in May.  High school teams from Boone Central, Fullerton, Hummphrey, Newman Grove, Palmer, Waverly, Cross County also took part in the Envirothon at Columbus. 

The Columbus scores were combined with those from an earlier contest in Grand Island to determine the winners.  The teams competing in the GI contest were Blue Hill, Loup City, and Wilcox-Hildreth.

Teams compete in each category of the contest and for the best score overall.  The categories of competition are forestry, natural resources policy, range, soils, aquatics, wildlife, and a special topic.  This year the special topic is “Western Rangeland Management.”

Regional Envirothons like the one in Columbus are held around the state and teams that score highest in those contests are invited to the Nebraska State Envirothon, to be held April 25th at Niobrara State Park.  The winner of that contest will go on to represent Nebraska at the North American Envirothon at Idaho State University at Pocatello, Idaho.
