What is the ENVIROTHON?

The Envirothon is a competitive, outdoor academic team event for high school students. A unique and enjoyable learning experience, the Envirothon is designed to stimulate, reinforce, and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources. Teams consist of 5 students, all from the same high school. An adult advisor must accompany the team, but is not permitted to assist the team during competition. The Ohio Envirothon test students’ knowledge of soils and land use, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology, and current environmental issues using an “ecostation” format.  Each year there is a new  and  different environmental issue.

Where is the ENVIROTHON?

Each year the Area II Envirothon rotates around 17 North East Ohio Counties.  Every year the competition is in a new location, and each year a different Soil and Water Conservation District is in charge & the main organizer for the event. In 2012, WE are the hosts for the Area II Envirothon. It will be held at the Kidron Community Park on Wednesday, April 25th.
