Pennsylvania Envirothon Mission

The Envirothon is an environmental education program made available to Pennsylvania Conservation Districts in partnership with related state and federal agencies and other organizations. The Envirothon program is designed to test high school students’ knowledge of Pennsylvania’s natural resources and environmental sciences. The program emphasizes the importance of environmental sensitivity while stressing a need to achieve a social, ecological, and economic balance. The Pennsylvania Envirothon provides future generations with the ability to be better equipped to address the complex natural resource concerns facing today’s world as well as the challenges of tomorrow.

Envirothon Competition

Envirothons are held every spring in counties across Pennsylvania. Participating high schools provide teams of up to five students who are tested in five subject areas or “ecosystem” areas including aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and a current issue. A different current environmental issue is selected every year. The winning team from each county is eligible to participate in the State-wide Envirothon and possibly the National Envirothon.
