On Thursday, October 6, the 8th grade class prepared presentations of their solutions to the driving question, "How can we support the population of a key species in an environment?"

The students were able to choose a subject of their liking. For instance, how to boost the bee population, how to clean up the Kalamazoo river, keep small-mouth bass populations higher, and much more.

After the groups squared off in a room-by-room setting, the winners were placed together to go one-by-one and present to the panel of judges including superintendent Dr. Lusk, Brian Talsma, the executive director of the Allegan Conservation District, and many more professionals.
