Student teams from Keenan High School and Spring Hill High School competed in the 20th Annual SC Envirothon, an environmental quiz bowl that provides college scholarships to high school students, on May 13, 2016. Held at the Clemson Sandhill Research and Education Center in Richland County, the SC Envirothon challenges high school students from across the state to compete in teams of five while completing college-level exams in aquatics, forestry, soils and wildlife and invasive species, and taking part in oral presentations.
The Richland Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) was a sponsor for the event, and two SWCD Commissioners and three staff members served as judges, station managers, and assistants during the competition. Teams from Spartanburg won this year's top honors. For more information about the SC Envirothon, visit http://www.dnr.sc.gov/education/Envirothon/.
