Hopkins High and Junior High competed at the Envirothon regional competition on May 2. Three of the eight teams will participate in the State Envirothon competition on May 20 at Oliver Kelley Farm in Elk River.

"They all did a lot of hard work and put in the time and the results showed," said John Sammler, Hopkins teacher and advisor of the Envirothon teams. "I am proud of their work."

Hopkins sent five senior level teams and three junior level teams. The teams in the junior high competition don't have a state qualifying round, but they did well.

Envirothon is an environmental education competition for high school students in grades 9-12. Teams visit six different learning stations covering aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and a current environmental topic that changes every year. Students are also required to give a brief oral presentation to a panel of judges based on that year's environmental topic.
