Congratulations Michigan Envirothon 2017 Competitors!

Hillsdale High School Conservation Commandos State Champs, will Represent MI at the NCF- Envirothon


Follow the Conservation Commandos from Hillsdale High School on Facebook as they represent Michigan this summer at the NCF Envirothon Competition. Our State champs will battle it out against other top teams from the U.S and Canada July 23 - July 29 at Mount St. Mary's University, Emmitsburg.

The 23rd Michigan Envirothon State competition hosted remarkable students from around the state. 24 teams qualified and received invitations to the state competition held May 17th – 19th at Michigan State University in East Lansing. Teams qualified through regional contests held around the state throughout the month of March.

During the State Competition, teams utilized ecostations for hands-on testing in the areas of forestry, soils and geology, aquatic ecology, wildlife, energy, and agriculture. This year Eco-stations featured a prairie and oak savannah, a variety of forest habitats, a marsh, open pond, and tributaries of the Red Cedar and the MSU Student Organic Farm.

Teams also identified and remedied a natural resource concern in their communities as part of the challenge to be named state champ. A panel of judges evaluated oral and written presentations given by each team and detailing their community outreach project. As always, the students implemented impressive community action and outreach projects. Learn more about them by following us on facebook as we highlight project throughout the year.
