Georgia Envirothon

Congratulations to the Vantage Point Education High School Environthon Team 2018!

For the third consecutive year this team from the Gwinnett County Soil & Water District took home the first place trophy at the Georgia Envirothon State Competition held March 27 & 28  at Camp Rutledge, located within Hard Labor Creek State Park.  Students competed in 5 divisions; Wildlife, Forestry, Aquatics, Soils & Land Use and a “current topic issue” which changes each year. The topic this year was Rangeland Conservation. Based on high marks on field and written tests, as well as their oral presentation focused on agricultural soil and water conservation, the team swept all five divisions.

The team will now go on to represent Georgia at the North American Envirothon Competition in Idaho this July. VPE team members are: Emma Alexander, Joan Deitsch, John Deitsch, Nadya Gutierrez, Brandon Waterfill. Their coach is Trish Foster. Good luck in Idaho!
