On March 9th, five members from the Algona FFA Chapter competed in the annual Envirothon competition in Ankeny, at the FFA Enrichment Center. Among the five members were Caleb Christensen, Maddie McPeak, Jordan Buscher, Nick Christensen, and Hunter Thilges. 

The competition consisted of taking tests over several different subjects about the environment, such as wildlife or different soil. Hunter Thilges said, “I really enjoyed competing. It was fun to learn new things.” The team of five took home 3rd place for Algona at the District competition. They are still waiting on all of the districts to compete as the top teams from across Iowa will compete in April; Algona is hoping to make the cut.
