 2021 Envirothon
The District sponsors the Perry County Envirothon each year. The event is heldat several different locations throughout Perry County. 
In 2021, the traditional activities within the Envirothon program both at the county and state levels were still in a transition period. District staff split up and ran the event separately at each school district but all in the same time frame. High school student teamin grades 9-12 from Newport, Susquenita, West Perry, and Greenwood school districts competed. Greenwood  Team 1 won the competition and moved on to place 34th at the PA Envirothon. 

Our T-Shirt Design Contest winner was Carter Bennett from Greenwood High School.
