ENVIRONTHON FIRST PLACE

ENVIRONTHON FIRST PLACE - For the third consecutive year Conneaut Area Senior High will be representing Crawford County at the Pennsylvania Envirothon competition. Against a field of 10 schools from Crawford and Mercer counties, C.A.S.H. not only claimed first place for Crawford County but had the highest total score for both counties and top scores in 4 out of the 5 test areas. The Envirothon is an academic competition that tests knowledge in wildlife, forestry, soils and land use, aquatic ecology, and current issues in conservation. It was developed and is sponsored by the state’s conservation districts. Conneaut also placed third in the county with a team composed mainly of first-year members. The first-place team members were, from left above - Chelsie Crate, Ashley Corwin, Oscar Anderson, Andrew Vorisek, and Danielle Manross.
