October 4th was the 42nd Annual Lake Shelbyville Eco-Meet, coordinated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Eco-Meet is an environmental competition for junior high and high schools to compete against each other at a varsity and junior varsity level. Sarah Haslett, a natural resources specialist, explains more on what the Eco-Meet is about.
This year, 39 schools competed, and that included a total of 156 students. Haslett says that she is very pleased with the turnout, but is still hoping to add more schools.
Haslett also says that the tests they give vary from year to year, but she shared some examples of what students might expect.
Crestwood came in first place in the Junior Varsity competition and Litchfield placed first at the Varsity level.
