The BHS Environthon Team, sponsored by BCCD, competed in the Northeast Regional Envirothon Competition in Crystal Lake yesterday. They have worked very hard putting in over 80 hours of group practice time and preparation as well as studying on their own at home and during lunch times at school. The BCCD is very proud of their efforts and impressed with their hard work and dedication. Their presentation on Rangeland Management was one of the top scorers, missing the top spot by only one point! Way to go BHS!!
