A total of 53 teams of high school students from Northwest Ohio competed at the Ohio Area 1 Envirothon, held at the Paulding County Fairgrounds on Wednesday April 27, 2016. The competition ended with Wynford students placing 2nd. Wynford earned the honor to now compete at the Ohio State Envirothon June 13th-14th, 2016 which will be held at Bowling Green University.
Crawford County was represented with two teams from Wynford and one from Colonel Crawford. Only the top four teams from each of the five Area Envirothon competitions across the state continue to the state competition.
The Envirothon is a multi-disciplinary, environmental problem solving competition hosted by Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Teams of four to five high school students train and compete in soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental issues.
