Cormorant Lake School & Duke of Marlborough School qualify for the
Provincial Envirothon Competition!
On April 25th and 26th students from Cormorant Lake School and Duke of Marlborough school participated in the Northern Regional Envirothon competition in The Pas. They competed against 8 other teams from across Northern Manitoba.
The Envirothon is an environmental science competition where teams must do a presentation and complete a field test that involves questions relating to Water and Aquatic Ecosystems, Soils and Land Use, Forestry and Native Plants, Wildlife and Wildlife Management, and this years’ theme Agricultural Soils and Water Conservation.
Both Frontier teams did well at the regional event and qualified to attend the provincial Envirothon competition to be held at the International Peace Gardens on the Canada/USA. The very excited teams will travel to the Peace Gardens on May 25th along with their teacher advisors Mr. Liam Mulvihill (Cormorant) and Ms. Carolyn Kyoomans (Churchill) to compete against 23 other teams from across Manitoba.
