The Sudbury Regional Envirothon Championships were held April 22 at Science North.
Ninety-five students from 15 schools in the Sudbury region competed for the right to go onto the Ontario championships, which will be held in St. George, Ontario, from May 6 to 9.
Grade 11 and 12 students first answered questions on  how to preserve and improve the environment in one of four different categories: aquatics, forestry, soils and wildlife.
Students also developed short presentations using a variety of media and techniques, including posters and oral presentations, to identify ways to maintain the different areas of the environment discussed.
