The King George 4-H Envirothon team just won 2nd place in regional competition! The team members are Alex Johnson, Zach Payne, Michelle Taft, Zach Moore and Elena Swick. They went on to compete in the state competition on May 17-18 at the Airfield 4-H Center in Wakefield, Virginia. What is Envirothon? It’s a competition centering on environmental areas. The teams must prepare an oral presentation and compete in categories of Wildlife, Aquatics, Soils, Forestry and a Special Topic which changes each year. This year’s topic is Biodiversity in a Changing World. The King George 4-H Envirothon Team has been studying since last summer to prepare for this event, and came in first place in Forestry and Aquatics at the regional competition. These young people have a great concern for the environment and a commitment to learn about and care for it. Congratulations!
