Envirothon

 

The Envirothon is a competitive national program for high school students, administered through local soil conservation districts.  Students are trained and tested in five natural resource fields: soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatics, and a current environmental issue that changes annually.  They compete progressively at the county, state, and international levels.  The teams work together with natural resource professionals such as biologists, foresters, and soil scientists to train for the local, state and international contests.  Most of the training is conducted outdoors in natural settings where they get hands on experiences.  The program develops students’ critical thinking, problem solving, communication, team-building and decision making skills using real life local environmental issues.
