"... unique and enjoyable experience designed to stimulate, reinforce, and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources among high school students."
What is the Envirothon?
A competitive outdoor team event, the Envirothon tests students' knowledge of soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology, and current environmental issues. In addition, the Envirothon encourages cooperative decision making and team building. While each student on an Envirothon team is challenged to contribute his or her personal best, the score that counts at the end of an Envirothon is the team score.
Five Area Envirothons are conducted around Ohio each Spring. The top four teams from each of these Area competitions progress to the Ohio Envirothon in June. This state level contest is held in a different part of Ohio each year. The top-scoring team in the Ohio Envirothon is eligible to compete in the National Envirothon, hosted by a different state each year.
