MOAB — The Blacksmith Fork 4-H team from Cache Valley came out on top in the recent Utah Envirothon, the state's largest natural resource competition.

Blacksmith Fork team members Houston Black, Kory Brown, Brayden Mickelson, Ben Riffe and Ethan Searle each received $1,000 scholarships to Utah State University's College Natural Resources and an expense-paid trip to represent Utah at the Canon Envirothon July 28-Aug. 3 in Flagstaff, Ariz. There, the team will compete against more than 50 teams from across the United States and Canada for more than $100,000 in scholarships.

Student teams demonstrated their knowledge of natural resources in five study areas — soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and a current environmental issue.
