Vantage Point was represented
by two teams of students this past Friday, March 27th and Saturday, March 28th, in Fort Valley, Georgia at the State
Envirothon competition. These first year teams did a great job representing the program among some heavy contenders
from across the state who have over the years placed 1st in the State earning the privilege to represent Georgia in the National
competition that usually takes place in July. The Envirothon is North America’s premier natural resource education
competition for high school students. It offers both in-class curriculum and hands-on field experiences focused around ecology,
natural resource management, and current environmental issues. Both teams qualified for the State competition having
secured advancement in the East Regionals competition held in Athens, GA at UGA’s Whitehall Forest on March 5th.
Based on testing and field work in the areas of Aquatics, Forestry, Soils/Land Use, Wildlife, and the Current
Event- Urban Forestry, the VPE Blue Team was awarded 4th place in the State! Team members include Connor Horne, Coral
Foster, Cooper Foster, and Ryan Jones. VPE Red team was awarded 7th place in the State with team members Melanie Hughes,

for first year teams in an event such as this. The State Envirothon Board acknowledged Vantage Point’s teams for doing
so well also! Based on performances in individual events, recognition is given to VPE Team Blue for also placing
third in Forestry and second in Wildlife in the State. VPE Red placed 4th in Aquatics as well.

presentation a community urban forestry plan with a tree ordinance and budget spanning a 5year stretch demonstrating
