Newton-Conover High School was represented by two teams at the Regional Envirothon Competition on Thursday, March 26th, 2015. The North Carolina Envirothon system is a part of a national effort to increase environmental education and awareness in both middle and high school students. Students work as a team to study and compete in testing events concerning the fields of Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Wildlife, and Current Environmental Issues.
“THE NATURE LOVERS” PLACE 6TH AT THE NORTHWEST REGIONAL ENVIROTHON!
“The Nature Lovers” team (Kaylah Bailey-Collier, Andrew Gaither, Jonathan Styers, Audrey Vang, and Vanessa Vang) have now qualified to compete in the North Carolina State Envirothon that will be held in Burlington, NC on April 24th and 25th. Congratulations to these students for ranking 6th out of 12 high school teams. These students will compete in more complex testing events and will have to provide an on-the-spot presentation to a group of community and government agency members concerning a possible solution to any given environmental issue.
