WHAT IS ENVIROTHON

The Envirothon is an international, academic, outdoor competition for high school students, which is designed to stimulate, reinforce and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources. The Envirothon tests students' knowledge of natural resources in five categories: Soils, Wildlife, Forestry, Aquatics, and Current Environmental Issues. Students compete through team problem solving activities. 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.

2019 Current Environmental Issue: Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge & Technology to Feed the World

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 International Envirothon, hosted by a different state or province each year.

Don't miss this great opportunity for your students!
