Connecticut Envirothon


  

The Connecticut Envirothon is a natural resource based education program started in 1992 by the state's Soil and Water Conservation Districts. This high school level program promotes environmental awareness, knowledge, and stewardship through education and team competition.

Throughout the year Envirothon teams work with a teacher/advisor on curriculum materials in the study areas of Soils, Aquatics, Wildlife, Forestry and Current Environmental Issues.

Then in May, teams meet for a day-long, fun filled field competition. Teams work together on practical, environmental problem solving and hands-on challenges. In addition, each team prepares a short oral presentation on a real life environmental problem and presents it to a panel of experts.

The winning Envirothon team earns the chance to represent our state at the North American Envirothon, a weeklong summertime event. The Connecticut team competes for scholarships and other prizes against about 60 other teams from the USA and Canada.

Visit the Connecticut Envirothon website (Exit NCCD) to learn about how to “Take the Natural Challenge.”
