Palmyra retained its crown this year at the Envirothon competition
Palmyra retained its crown this year at the Lebanon County Envirothon competition on April 29th. Awards were given to the top ten overall places as well as the top station score. Palmyra teams placed 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 10th overall. We also earned top scores in four of the five stations: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, & Current Issue.
Palmyra Area High School has qualified to represent Lebanon County at the PA State Envirothon competition. Due to COVID, the state competition will also be held virtually. There will be three stages to the competition. The first stage includes the written station testing, consisting of five separate tests, which will be on Monday, May 10th.
Based upon the results of those tests, the top 15 teams across the state, will be invited to compete in the oral component category. We should be notified on May 12th if we advance to the oral component portion. If we do qualify, Thursday, May 13th will be the date to complete this portion. The last portion will include a 10-minute question and answer period with environmental professionals serving as judges via zoom on May 25th. The entire team will be camp counselors at OE during that week.
