The Envirothon is an annual, international competition that has proven to be an exciting and useful tool for incorporating environmental education into high school classrooms. The teams consist of five dedicated students, who compete first at the Area II Envirothon, which includes 17 counties in Northeastern Ohio. The winners from the top four teams in each Area advance to the State Envirothon. The top team from each State advance to the National Conservation Foundation Envirothon Competition.
