Web Soil Survey:
and Current Environmental Issue (CEI)
The Envirothon is designed to stimulate, reinforce and enhance interest in our environment and our natural resources among high school students.
The Envirothon tests students' knowledge of soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology and current environmental issues (CEI). In addition, the Envirothon encourages cooperative decision-making and team building. While each student on an Envirothon team is challenged to contribute his or her personal best, the score that counts at the end of an Envirothon is the team score.
Any high school teacher can start an Envirothon team in their school. A team consists of a maximum of five students, all from the same high school. The High School can have up to 3 total teams. An adult advisor (or advisors) must accompany the team, but is not permitted to assist the team during the competition. Teams usually convene before or after school to study the Envirothon areas of study. There is lots of guidance and assistance on the the Area, State and National Envirothon information pages.
Warren SWCD can help mentor any teacher in creating a new Envirothon team or continuing an established program. We can help teach and guide students towards important information. We are very familiar with the Envirothon process and competition, so don't hesitate to inquire further or ask for assistance!
