Student Watershed Watch
Results of Student Summit 2014

The 25th annual Student Watershed Watch (SWW) Summit was held November 19 at the University of Toledo Scott Park Campus. Sixteen schools participated in the first part of the SWW performing field work and evaluating water quality parameters. About 150 students from nine schools were able to participate in the second part which is the Student Summit.

For the Student Summit, classrooms present their results from the stage and also prepare a table top display. Their oral presentations are evaluated by a panel of judges who work in environmental or educational fields. Teachers evaluate the table top displays. Students also attend workshops exploring professions in environmental science. Speakers represented the Toledo Zoo, Metroparks of the Toledo Area, and the Ohio EPA emergency response team.

The keynote speaker for the 2014 Student Summit was Tom Henry, a Blade reporter specializing in environmental issues. The emcee was Jim Blue, a managing editor at WNWO NBC 24.
