On March 24, 2012, five Colusa High School students competed in the final verbal competition at the Caring for Our Watersheds Environmental Contest. Initially, over 220 proposals for improving local watersheds were submitted by area high school students. Only the top ten were selected make presentations to a panel of judges. In the end, Colusa High School made a strong showing with Yajaira Cruz and Aimee Galvez taking 3rd with their proposal about the extraction fishing line from the local watershed. Recycling school grey water earned Sebastian Medina and Anthony Mojica 6th place and Patty Rodriguez-Adams finished 9th with her proposal to reduce plastic pollution. The students are all part of the Environmental Science Academy’s Ecology class taught by Craig Richards.
