For the fourth year, KyCorn has supported and assisted the Kentucky Envirothon, a unique competition that challenges students in natural resources practical knowledge and lifelong lessons on how to preserve our environment. The Commonwealth's top teams competed in an oral competition, followed by field tests surrounding the issue of sustainable agriculture.
Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School won this year's competition, and each team member received a $500 scholarship sponsored by Dow Corning. The top FFA team was from Madison Southern High School. They will represent Kentucky at the Environmental and Natural Resources Career Development Event in conjunction with the National FFA Convention in Louisville this October.
The Kentucky Envirothon is administered by the Kentucky Division of Conservation.
