A five-student team from Garfield-Palouse High School has clinched first place in the Washington State Envirothon Competition and will be competing at the national level at the end of July.
The environmental education competition, which takes place each spring, invites students in ninth through 12th grades to test their knowledge of ecology-based subjects of aquatic ecology and soils, forestry, wildlife and land use.
Each year, the Palouse Conservation District hosts regional competitions and this year they collaborated with 11 similar organizations around the state to help host a statewide competition virtually. As first-place winners, the Garfield-Palouse team, which includes high school seniors Ethan Montgomery, Megan Olson, Austin Jones, Ethan Cook and Garrett Blomgren, will represent Washington schools this year at nationals.
