Skiles Test received the Indiana Outdoor Lab of the Year award sponsored by the Indiana Tree Farm Committee.
It was determined that Skiles Test has the best, most educational outdoor lab in the state of Indiana for 2017. The school will receive a check for $500 from the Indiana Hardwood Lumberman’s Association (IHLA) and a letter of appreciation from an Indiana Senator, as well as a plaque to display. The award will be given at the HASTI (Hoosies Association of Science Teachers, Inc.) conference in February, where Mr. Shafer will present the highlights of the Skiles Test Lab to attendees.
Skiles Test is the first Marion County winner in 22 years. Mr. Dave Shafer, Skiles Test STEM teacher, is pictured below with the award.
