ATLANTA (AP) - Stephens County High School in Toccoa is set to compete with other teams from North America in a contest testing students' knowledge of environmental issues.
The school recently won the 2013 Georgia Envirothon competition, which uses class curriculum and field experience to test students' knowledge of ecology, natural resource management and current environmental issues.
The team was given presentations on aquatics, forestry, soil, wildlife, and rangeland management and was tested on each of the five topics.
Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission spokesman Michael Wald says the school's team will compete at the Envirothon North America contest at Montana State University in early August.
Next year's Envirothon North America competition is being hosted by the University of Georgia, in Athens.
