The Chardon Envirothon team has taken first place out of about 60 teams in the Area 2 Envirothon yet again. The CHS students had to take a three hour field test in the cold, blowing rain at Old Woman Creek State Nature Preserve in Huron, Ohio on May 3rd.
To have prevailed under those conditions took a great deal of stamina as well as skill and preparation. The team arrived at 9:45 and left at 1:45 and at no time were they able to go indoors, as they ate and had the awards ceremony outdoors as well.
Congratulations to team members Kate Best (captain), Kim Savides, Matt Perkins, Brian Vadakin and Anna Parker on their win. Team advisor is CHS Chemistry teacher Marilyn Rohr.
They will compete in the Ohio Envirothon over 2 days in June (13th-14th) at BGSU. If they win again, they will compete in the Canon US-Canada Envirothon in Sackville, New Brunswick, the last week of July.
