Prince Fredrick, MD -- The Calvert High School Envirothon team was honored by the Calvert County Board of Education for capturing Calvert County’s first state championship in the 29th Annual Maryland State Envirothon Competition.

At the state competition, team members Michael Deffinbaugh, Krissy Dube, Grace Miller, Ben Springer, and Vincent Sullens finished first in the Soils, Wildlife and Forestry category and second in Aquatics.

The team represented the state of Maryland at the National Envirothon competition in North Carolina and earned an impressive 10th place out of 53 teams.

Envriothon is a competition where winning teams from participating states and Canadian provinces compete for recognition and scholarships by demonstrating their knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management.

The team is coached by Chuck Gustin, Calvert High science teacher, with support from Linda Subda of Chespax and the following county organizations: Calvert Soil Conservation District, the Calvert Forestry Board, Morgan State PEARL staff, the Calvert County Natural Resource Division, and the American Chestnut Land Trust.
