HAWLEY, PA — We Rock the World, a team from the Wallenpaupack Area High School, took home first-place honors in the 2022 Pike Envirothon. The team represented Pike at the state Envirothon competition.
Second place went to the Walleye Warriors of Delaware Valley High School.
Envirothon is an educational competition designed to test the knowledge, skills and problem-solving capabilities of high school students regarding the earth’s natural resources.
At the county event, each five-member team applied their knowledge and problem-solving skills in subject areas that included aquatic ecology, forestry, soils and land use, wildlife and the topic of “waste to resources.”
A wide range of government and agency partners provide educational reference materials for high school teams as well as technical expertise and knowledge for the event.
Each year both Pike and Wayne Conservation Districts seek financial contributions to support the program. Donations support the purchase of Envirothon T-shirts, educational prizes and awards, lunch and snacks. This year’s event was supported by the Pennsylvania Trappers Association.
The Pike Envirothon is coordinated by the Pike and Wayne County Conservation Districts.
For more information, call the Pike County Conservation District office at 570/226-8220 or the Wayne Conservation District at 570/253-0930.
