Envirothon is a competitive learning event for high school-aged students. Envirothon tests the student's knowledge of environmental resources including soils, forestry, wildlife and current environmental issues. "Like" the Indiana Envirothon on Facebook and check out Canon's Envirothon site.
How Envirothon works
Teams of five students, representing a school or organization, compete by answering questions and by studying resource problems in each of the five environmental areas.
Before the competition, students study, with their advisors, to develop a greater understanding the environment.
At the Envirothon competition, students test their knowledge under the supervision of environmental instructors. Students use teamwork to develop creative solutions to environmental problems.
Indiana's regional competition begins in March:
North American Envirothon
Each year, Envirothon provides more and more students with a chance to get "up-close and personal" with North America's natural resources. Envirothon offers both in-class curriculum and hands-on field experiences focused around ecology, natural resource management and current environmental issues. This unique combination of learning experiences and breadth of study is part of what has made the Envirothon a huge success with students and educators across the United States and Canada.
