On Thursday, October 3, students from Tescott High School
competed in the 19 th annual regional EcoMeet at Salina’s Indian Rock Park.
EcoMeet is a scholarship competition for students interested in wildlife
biology in Kansas. Students compete in four areas. Teams are tested over
their general knowledge of a Kansas ecosystem (woodlands this year) and
knowledge of a specific group of wildlife (birds this year). Teams then
compete in a scavenger hunt to test their ability to locate and identify native
plants and animals. Finally, teams perform an interpretive skit to
demonstrate their ability to communicate information to an audience. Teams
from an eight county area participated at this year’s regional competing in
both team and individual competition. The THS team of Danni Ehlers, Zach
Perry, Braydon Peterson, and Remington Peterson placed second overall and
won $300 in scholarships. The THS team of Kylie Flax, Alex Hunley,
Kayden Presnell, and Prairie Robbins placed third overall and won $200 in
scholarships. In the individual competition, Remington Peterson took second
place in the woodlands test earning $50 in scholarship while Zach Perry took
second place in the birds test earning $50 in scholarship. Both Tescott teams
qualified to compete at the State EcoMeet to be held at the Dyck Arboretum
in Hesston on Thursday, November 7.
