United Students are Winners in Junior High Envirothon

United Students are Winners in Junior High Envirothon
The Junior High Envirothon, sponsored by the Indiana County conservation District, yielded two first-pace teams from United Junior High School.  Both the seventh and eighth grade students placed first in the competition.  Teams rotated through four different stations including forestry, aquatic ecology, wildlife, and soil and land use.  Students also learned about and were tested on their local environment.  Attending Envirothon has academic benefits such as learning about new subjects in the science field.  According to United's advisor, Judy Shomo, "This was a year to celebrate because for the first time in the history of United students attending the junior high Envirothon, we had both a seventh grade and an eighth grade team receive a first-place award together."
