The C. Milton Wright Envirothon team pressed in around the picnic table, peering into a row of five glass jars containing plant samples. The one they held to the sunlight waved at them tauntingly through the water. After several moments of flipping through plant charts and conferring, senior Amanda Klapka, 17, asked her teammates, "Do we all agree this is wild celery?" Her hand rested on the lid, tilting the jar slightly on its edge. It was a morning to be a little edgy for the 75 Harford students competing last week in the Envirothon, the country's premier high school environmental science contest, which draws students from more than 40 states and several Canadian provinces.

An island nation, coping with the effects of global warming, the depletion of fossil fuels and the loss of its tourism industry, needed help in its search for alternative energy. A team of environmentalists came to the rescue, recommending crops that would generate ethanol to fuel cruise ships, and wind and solar power to ease the energy crunch. That team of five Harford Christian School students who solved the problem, part of this year's Envirothon competition, won first place and will represent the county next month in the state phase of the international natural resources competition.

They're measuring trees, examining deer jawbones and digging in 6-foot pits - doing their best to avoid the manure piles left by the fields' usual occupants. By the end of the week, one of the 41 American and six Canadian teams will be named winner of the 2003 Canon Envirothon. "It's fun, but it's a lot of hard work," said 16-year-old Angela Possinger of the team representing Massachusetts.
