Mission: "To challenge and inspire an interest, appreciation and understanding of the natural sciences and the Kansas environment thru interscholastic competition."
Imagine a competition where knowledge of Kansas' wildlife and plants is the key to success! The ECO-MEETs offer a chance for the most naturally-qualified high school students to show what they know and win scholarships.
Participants are tested in four areas: Habitat written test, Focus written test, Scavenger Hunt (seek and find)and Interpretation - more than a skit and less than a speech, with elements of both - and a lot of fun!
Both team and individual effort are recognized by giving college scholarships to the members of the top three teams and to the top two individuals in the ecosystem and focus tests.
Eco Meet team meetings are once a week August - November in Ms. Scribner's classroom RM 124 after school with competitions being completed by the first weekend in November. Join the team NOW! Meetings: Sept 5, 12, 19, 26, 2013 and October 3, 10 13 (Sunday at Great Plains Nature Center 2pm), 17 (after competition on October 15), 2013
