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.
