Haywood student best in state on conservation exam

Written by 

out studentsTuscola senior Allie Dinwiddie won a $500 scholarship and $100 cash for making the top score on an exam during the Resource Conservation Workshop in Wake County. Dinwiddie and Maggie Rogers, also a Tuscola senior, recently joined 91 high school students from across the state at the workshop.

 

The girls were sponsored by the Haywood Soil and Water Conservation District and were chosen based on their interest in natural resources and their participation in local programs such as Envirothon and the Youth Environmental Stewardship Camp. 

At the workshop, students were housed in a dorm at North Carolina State University and spent their days with scientists, foresters, biologists, wetland specialists, wildlife experts and engineers who provided classroom instruction and outdoor study in the environmental sciences. Students also received information and insight into careers in natural resource management. 

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the workshop.
