ANNAPOLIS, MD – A five-member team of students from Carroll County, named Venturing Crew 202, is the winner of the 25th annual Maryland Envirothon — an outdoor natural resources competition that challenges students to identify and categorize living resources, perform soil surveys and solve other complex natural resource issues. More than 89 challengers from 18 counties across Maryland took part in this year’s competition. The event was held June 17-18 at the St. Mary’s College of Maryland in St. Mary’s County.

“I am so impressed with all the students in this competition and the dedication and commitment they bring to their studies of our natural resources,” said Agriculture Secretary Joe Bartenfelder. “This is not an easy competition and I congratulate all the students who participated, especially those on the Venturing Crew team. I know they will do Maryland proud at the national Envirothon.”
