The Pymatuning/Shenango Watershed Challenge is a hands-on, interactive environmental competition for students in grades 6th - 8th. The competition is open to schools in Ohio (Ashtabula, Trumbull and Mahoning Counties) and Pennsylvania (Crawford, Mercer and Lawrence Counties). Schools may send up to two teams of 3 to 5 individuals.
As a team, the students answer questions on aquatics, forestry, soils, watersheds and wildlife. The teams get the chance to meet with specialists from each of these areas and after the competition, enjoy a light lunch and an awards ceremony.
