Pittsboro, NC - Three Envirothon teams competed in the regional competition Wednesday, March 25, at Elon University. All three teams placed in the top seven, qualifying them to compete at the state competition. The Indestructibles (Alex Green, Moli Eddins, Forrest Glosson, and Brandon Glosson) placed fourth. The Wolverines (Alex Galin, Clay Berg, Ryan Millis, and Jack Dalton) placed third. And, the Sleeping Beavers (Dionna Bright, Ellen Turner, Christian Owens, and Clark Streets) placed second.

Envirothon is an extra-curricular Environmental Education program for sixth, seventh, and eighth graders sponsored by the local Social and Water Conservation Districts. Envirothon includes five curriculum areas for which students are responsible for knowing - wildlife, aquatics, soils, forestry, and current environmental issues. Dawn Streets, Lori Kleberg, and Adrienne Berg are the teacher advisors.

“The Envirothon Curriculum is particularly relevant to our world today. Educating our students about environmental issues should be a top priority. I am glad our students have the opportunity to take part in this valuable program. The event organizers were very impressed that all three of the Perry Harrison teams placed in the top five – a very significant accomplishment. We are extremely proud of all the team members and appreciate their hard work," said Streets.
