An Envirothon is an environmental competition in which teams of five students, grades 9 through 12, compete against other Delaware County High Schools teams in five subject areas: Soils, Aquatics, Wildlife, Forestry, and a current issue topic which is updated each year. Every High School is permitted to send two teams of five to the event.
Study materials and various publications are available to educators to help their students prepare for the event. High Schools who currently participate develop teams in various different ways such as: Environmental Clubs, Incorporation of material into classroom activities and reward students who perform well by placing them on the team, or a host of other methods.
Tests are developed by professionals in each area of expertise: Pa. Fish & Boat Commission, Pa. Game Commission, DCNR – Forestry, and the U.S.D.A. Natural Resource Conservation Service.
