Local Students Test Knowledge Of Environment


A hands-on competition had high school students getting down and dirty on Tuesday.

It was all part of the 20th Annual Envirothon.

Students used their knowledge of the great outdoors to analyze samples of tree branches, organisms and much more.

The kids were tested in five areas - soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife and a current environmental issue.

Nearly every high school in Jefferson County was involved.

"It was great fun as always. I love animals, nature and all that jazz," said LaFargeville student Rachel Wilson.

Alexandria Central School took first place in the competition for the sixth year in a row!
