CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (AP) - Seven teams of high school students will get an opportunity to see whether they would be good stewards of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
The teams will compete in the UVA Bay Game on Feb. 9 at the University of Virginia.
The computer simulation uses demographic, economic and scientific data. Students will play as farmers, land developers, watermen or policymakers.
Participating teams are from James River High School in Midlothian, Monticello High School in Albemarle County, Louisa County High School in Mineral, Hidden Pond Nature Center in Fairfax, Shenandoah Valley Governor's School in Fishersville, Eastern View High School in Culpeper and Chesterfield High School in Chesterfield.
