MINERAL WELLS, W.VA. – The 17th annual West Virginia Envirothon proved to be another exciting competition; especially for the Doddridge County Gold team.
 
Just over 200 high school students from across West Virginia traveled to the Wood County 4H Camp to compete at this year's competition, held April 18-19, 2013.
 
Advised by Tina Moore, Doddridge County Gold walked away from this year's competition with a shared $5,000 scholarship, sponsored by the Weyerhaeuser Foundation.  They are also eligible to compete at the 2013 North American Envirothon in Bozeman, Montana.
 
Second place went to Ravenswood FFA, advised by Tara Tatalovich, they earned a shared scholarship of $3,750, sponsored by the Dominion Foundation. In addition to winning second place overall, Ravenswood FFA also earned the honor of being this year's top scoring FFA team. They are now eligible to compete at the national FFA Competition.
 
The Elkins High Tigers, advised by Patricia Schoonover, took third place, earning them a team scholarship of $2,500, sponsored by the West Virginia State Conservation Committee and the West Virginia Conservation Agency.
 
The fourth place team was Mineral County FFA, advised by Julie Sions. They earned a shared scholarship of $1,750 sponsored by Mountain RC&D and Great Kanawha RC&D.
 
Advised by Brian Clagg, fifth place went to Cabell Midland FFA, winning a shared scholarship of $1,250, sponsored by the West Virginia Solid Waste Authority.
 
"The West Virginia Envirothon is an excellent program for our high school students," said Andrew Stacy, public relations chairman for the WV Envirothon Committee. "It teaches students about the environment and how to be good stewards of it. Best of all, the students have a lot of fun in the process."
 
The Envirothon is a conservation education program available to students in grades 9 through 12. The Envirothon gives students from across the region the opportunity to test their skills at aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and this year's current environmental topic, Sustainable Grassland Management.
 
The West Virginia Envirothon is made possible through generous partners and sponsors. Specifically, the Dominion Foundation and Weyerhaeuser Foundation, their continued support has allowed this event to achieve great success.
