CCS team wins envirothon contest division in Omaha PDF Print E-mail

An Imperial FFA team from Chase County Schools (CCS) took first in one of the divisions in the 2013 Nebraska Envirothon State Contest held May 4 in Omaha.
The high school team of Mason Holmes, Justin German, Jordan Gibb, Spencer Hartman and Hunter Spady won the “policy station” division.
The policy station consists of questions pertaining to natural resources conservation policies and laws, along with regulations on local, state and national levels.
Students in this division take a 50-question test and are asked to interpret maps and diagrams relating to natural resources policy.
The “policy station” is one of seven environmental areas  in the statewide contest. Other areas include soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife, range and sustainable rangeland management.
Concordia High School was the overall team winner of the envirothon state contest and will represent Nebraska at the North American Envirothon in Bozeman, Mont., the first week in August.
Twelve teams were entered in this year’s state event.
