CLCS places in Envirothon Competition
Chautauqua Lake Central School’s Team 1 placed sixth in the statewide Envirothon Competition.
After winning the county competition hosted by the Chautauqua County Soil and Water Conservation District, Chautauqua Lake was one of 35 teams from across New York state to compete in environmental science and natural resource management written and oral tests during the two-day competition. The team is coached by Mary Jantzi and Brian Fortney. Team members are Sophia Shearer, Abigail Parker, Sydney Hawkins, Henry Mueller and Owen Nelson. This is the highest that Chautauqua Lake has ever placed at the state level.
“I congratulate the winners and all who participated in the 2022 Envirothon for demonstrating their commitment to helping protect New York’s environment and learning important skills that will build bright futures,” said Basil Seggos, state DEC commissioner. “DEC is proud to partner in the Envirothon and values the insight provided by these students both on this year’s highlighted issue, waste management, and other ongoing environmental challenges as we seek to work with all New Yorkers on creating a cleaner, more sustainable state.”
