Local Envirothon winners compete in statewide event

Posted

NEW HARTFORD — The Oneida County Soil and Water Conservation District held its 24th annual Envirothon event in May at the town of New Hartford’s Sherrill Brook Park.

Envirothon exposes high school students to conservation, environmental, and natural science subjects, according to an announcement by the Oneida County Soil and Water Conservation District.

The students are tested on five subject areas; aquatics, wildlife, soils, forestry, and a current event, which changes each year. This year’s current event was waste to resources-designing a comprehensive local solid waste management plan.

The current event section includes an oral presentation from each team on the year’s topic.  

The 2022 Oneida County Envirothon winning team was from Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES.

The team was made up of Marc Fellows, Laura Green, Dylan Valenti, Collin Williams, and Eden Koperda and advised by Phil Lacelle.

The students from Oneida Herkimer Madison BOCES received the Ted Willson Scholarship and qualified to compete at the New York State Envirothon held at Hobart and William Smith College last weekend.

For additonal information, including how to participate in next year’s event, contact Jessica McLaughlin, district manager, by email at Jessica.McLaughlin@oneidacountyswcd.org or by calling 315-736-3334.
