RANSON, W.Va. -- Maximus Espinoza-Bolanos, a second-grader at Ranson Elementary School, was chosen as the winner in the 12 years of age and under category in the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s Youth Program Challenge.
His project is about frogs.  His mother says he loves frogs, and he has a collection of frogs from small too big and in different colors, but mostly green ones.  
Because of the COVID-19 restrictions this year, the contest was a “cardboard challenge.” 
The West Virginia Youth Environmental Program was established in 1963 under the Division of Natural Resources as the West Virginia Youth Conservation Program.  Its mission is to provide a challenge and an opportunity to the youth of West Virginia to participate in environmental projects within their communities.
