State Envirothon Competition

Guernsey County hosted the State Envirothon competition this year. It was held
at Salt Fork State Park.  High School teams from all over Ohio compete at the local level,
 and the winners come to the state competition.  The winner at the state level will go
on to compete at the national level.  Besides the prestige, students on the teams
win scholarships.  Teams are tested on 5 topics:  Water, Soils, Forestry, Wildlife,
and current environmental issues.  This year, the issue was sustainable agriculture.
