JSU’s Environmental Policy and Information Center
is proud each year to host the Regional EnviroBowl Competition. The event,
sponsored by Legacy, Inc. Partners in Environmental Education, tests the
environmental knowledge of Alabama’s high school students. Teams
battle by answering questions on topics such as air quality, chemistry,
ecology, forestry, geology, physics, pollution, water quality, and wildlife.
About Legacy, Inc.
Legacy was created in 1992 by a group of individuals
dedicated to providing quality, fact-based environmental education materials
to the citizens of Alabama. Today, the organization brings together state
and federal agencies, businesses, environmental groups, associations, and
concerned citizens to provide comprehensive environmental education programs
without duplicating efforts of other organizations. Legacy’s goal is to
operate as a true partnership of all groups interested in environmental
education, to develop and provide balanced environmental education programs,
and to prevent duplication of effort by supporting existing quality environmental
education programs. Revenue for Legacy’s environmental education programs
comes primarily from the sale of Alabama’s “Protect Our Environment” license
tag. Other money comes from the partnership program, donations, corporate
sponsors, in-kind donations, grants, and special events.
