The spirit of competition
The spirit of competition stimulates students’ interests in environmental concerns and motivates them to further develop their skills and grow into environmentally-aware, action-oriented adults.
Envirothon activities begin locally with teams of five 9th through 12th grade students competing for their County Envirothon title. Local competitions are sponsored by their Conservation Districts, with a helping hand from local environmental recreational civic groups and businesses.
County winners then move on to the state contest where their knowledge is challenged in five areas: aquatic ecology, forestry, soils & land use, wildlife, and the current environmental issue.
