The students have reached this stage through a rigorous elimination process. The students were asked to answer the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” The question then had to be answered in 1000 words, with visuals and a budget. The 10 best entries were then selected from more than 40 entries. The top 10 teams that have been selected are currently being mentored by teachers and experts. Teams from Mount Notre Dame, Sycamore High School, Arlington Heights Academy, Loveland High School, and Wyoming High School hold the top 10 entries.
Agrium’s Caring for our Watershed is an international initiative, to empower young minds to think creatively on this important environmental issue. The Ohio version of the program is locally organized by the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District. This is the second year that the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District has organized the event in Ohio. The contest is open to students of grades 9 - 12 living in Hamilton County, Ohio.
