2019 Envirothon Team

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (MAY 6, 2019) — A group Williamsport Area High School students ranked among the top three at the 33rd annual Envirothon held recently at the Consolidated Sportsmen of Lycoming County along Route 87.

Of the 21 contending teams, the WAHS group, consisting of Hannah Haussman, Mike Jones, Deidre LeBlanc, Sam Mahler, Kaida Muise and Emily Smith, took second place for Lycoming County and third place overall.

This was the first year a WAHS team participated.

At Envirothon, teams of high school students compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas: Soils and Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and Environmental Issues. A current environmental issue is chosen each year for the focus of this station as well as the oral presentation component. This year, that topic was “Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge and Technology to Feed the World.”
