Students from Roseboro-Salemburg Middle and Midway Middle recently competed in the NC Envirothon.

The program consists of one-day area competitions held on March 23 where students competed from Sampson, Bladen and Cumberland counties. The NC Envirothon is an exciting natural resource education program designed to challenge students in an interactive, outdoor competition where middle and high school teams, consisting of three to five students, are tested in areas of wildlife, forestry, aquatic ecology, soils, land use and current environmental issues.

The program boasts a successful history of providing hands-on environmental and natural resource management education to students, empowering young people with the competencies and motivation vital to achieving and maintaining a natural balance between quality of life and the of the environment. The NC Envirothon is an annual competition for high school and middle school students.

Three teams from Sampson will now advance to the two-day state competition held April 28-29. The top seven scoring teams in each area will compete at the state competition to represent North Carolina at the National Conservation Foundation.
