Envirothon NB 2015


Competition
May 24th & 25th, 2015
University of New Brunswick, Saint John




Welcome to the 15th year of Envirothon NB. This year we are pleased to have Science East taking care of the coordinating details of the program and the year end competition that was recently held at the University of New Brunswick, Saint John, during May 24th and 25th. This has been a smooth transition as the Envirothon NB Steering Committee has remained the same and in control of the program’s direction and content. This is a very exciting time for the Envirothon NB program as it can benefit from Science East’s resources.



Stanley High School, Oromocto High School take top honours at 15th annual Envirothon NB

Saint John, NB – Teams from Stanley High School and Oromocto High School won the 2015 Envirothon NB competition, held this week in Saint John. The Stanley High School team, “The Stanley High Buffleheads,” was the non-competitive winner, and the Oromocto High School team, “Lost in the Woods,” was the competitive winner. That means Oromocto High School’s team is eligible to represent New Brunswick at the North American Envirothon, happening in July in Missouri.

“Stanley High School’s team included a student from their junior Envirothon team, an incredible accomplishment for a young student,” says program coordinator Becky Geneau. “Stanley was the overall winner of Envirothon NB. Oromocto came in second, making them the highest placing team eligible for the North American Envirothon, which only takes students grades 9-12.”

The 15th annual environmental science competition culminates a full year’s study in the areas of forestry, aquatic ecology, wildlife, and soils and land use. The participants attended workshops conducted by skilled natural resources specialists, combining in-class teaching and hands-on field experience throughout the school year.

Two founding members of Envirothon NB were also recognized at this year’s event. Chris Pitt and Kelly Honeyman were presented with 15-year service awards at Monday’s awards ceremony.

“Both Chris and Kelly have been committed to the Envirothon NB program for a decade and a half now,” says Geneau. “It’s an honour to have them part of the Envirothon NB team, passing their knowledge and passion for environmental sciences on to the next generation.”

Stanley High School team members are Owen Foreman, Dee Carr, Reilly McWade, Maddie Carr, and Emma McArthur. Dee Carr is in grade 8; she and Maddie Carr are sisters.

Oromocto High School’s team members are Nikita Spencer, Nathan Carrier, Jacob Baird, Bailey Mongrain and Veronica Howe

Thank you to all of our supporters, judges, and volunteers who have made this a wonderful experience for the teams and their advisors. We hope that Envirothon NB Alumni return next year to volunteer.
