WHAT IS AN ENVIROTHON?

The Envirothon is an environmental studies program for high school students. It is based on five subject areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and the current issue—which change annually. In past years, the current issue has covered topics such as: agricultural preservation, invasive species, non-point source pollution, wildlife management, wetlands, biodiversity, alternative and renewable energy, etc.


A “Station Master” manages each of the subject areas. These dedicated professionals oversee all aspects in their area of expertise. They approve the learning objectives, reference lists, and study guides that are recommended by the New York State Envirothon Committee. In addition, they are responsible for supervising their “station” during the event.


On the day of the program, the students rotate between the subject stations and answer questions as a team. Each subject area test is made up of 25 multiple-choice questions. Many of the questions are hands-on, involving the use of equipment, maps, and/or audio-visual devices.


A sixth category, the oral presentation, is devoted to the current issue. The students are given an environmental scenario, which is posted on our website in February. They are required to prepare a solution as a team and present their results to a panel.
