Corvallis Students Win FWP Grizzly Bear Contest
Students from Corvallis High School won a statewide competition about Grizzly Bears sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. The six-week FWP IC Grizzly Bear Challenge was a "distance learning" project where they viewed a video of Montana's bear managers and took part in two livestream events on-line with managers and those affected by bear activities. After that, they were asked to research the topics, consider solutions and create a final product.
Corvallis had the best action plan and won the competition. The members were Danielle Coates, Vitoria Ferreira, Jake Flowers, River Gladin, Sammantha Shegrud, Harley Wise and Kara Wissenbach, with instructor Jeffrey Kaiser. Second place went to Flathead High School and third place was earned by the team from Cutbank High School. The challenge was sponsored by the Montana Outdoor Legacy Foundation, Liz Claiborne and Art Ortenberg Foundation, Dennis and Phillis Washington Foundation, Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation, TransCanada and Cabelas.
