Cascade High School Envirothon Team Moves on to the State Contest

The 2019 Northwest Regional Envirothon was held on March 27th at Brightwater in Maltby. Seven teams of students from King and Snohomish Counties competed on their knowledge of natural resource issues. The winning team from Snohomish County was Cascade High School in Everett. Ingraham High School from Bellevue was the first place overall winner. Both teams move on to the two-day State Competition on May 22 and 23 at Camp Don Bosco in Carnation. Students compete on their knowledge of soils, wildlife, forestry, aquatic resources and a current issue. This year’s issue is Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge & Technology to Feed the World. The competition was sponsored by conservation districts from King, Snohomish and Skagit counties. As King Conservation District Board Supervisor Dick Ryon shared, “All of the students were winners today.” He was so impressed with their knowledge and efforts!
