Bob Romig, Tuscarawas County tree farmer, recently awarded two forestry camp scholarships to the winners of the "What Forests Mean to Me" essay contest.

Receiving the camp scholarships were Clay Marshall of Dover and Kelaiah Kneuss of New Philadelphia, who attended the Ohio Forestry and Wildlife Conservation camp held June 9-14 at FFA Camp Muskingum in Carroll County.

At the camp, participants are taught to identify trees and wildlife, learn about insects, and conduct stream sampling. They will also hike through the woods and monitor wildlife and learn how to manage for wildlife timber harvesting and forest ecology.

Romig awarded the scholarships in honor of his mother, Gertrude Myer.
