OLINDA – The 4-H Dirt Devils of Seabury Hall will represent Hawaii in the Conservation Awareness Program national competition May 4 to 6 in Oklahoma City. The four-member team is raising funds to attend the event.
Sixty-five high school students representing Baldwin, Kamehameha Maui, Lahainaluna, Maui High, St. Anthony and Seabury competed Oct. 19 at Maui Tropical Plantation in the Maui contest that tests students on how to classify soil, analyze the slope of land and recommend best use of lands.
The 4-H Dirt Devils advanced to, and won, the state competition Nov. 30 at Kunia, Oahu.
The Hawaii Association of Conservation Districts co-sponsors the local and state contests with the Soil and Water Conservation Districts of each island, in cooperation with the University of Hawaii Cooperative Extension Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
