Environthon

The ENVIROTHON is designed to stimulate, reinforce and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources among high school students. The Envirothon tests students’ knowledge of soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology and current environmental issues. 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.

Each year, Franklin Soil and Water assists local schools with the Area Envirothon competition. To register, please email Linda Pettit, our Environmental Education Specialist, at lpettit@franklinswcd.org or by calling (614) 486-9613.  

A team consists of five students, all from the same high school. An adult advisor(s) must accompany the team, but is not permitted to assist the team during the competition.

Five “Area Envirothons” are conducted around Ohio late each spring. The top four teams from each of these Area competitions progress to the Ohio Envirothon in June.

We are currently looking for Envirothon Sponsors! If you or your business is interested in becoming a team sponsor of the Envirothon, you can find out how to do so through the Sponsorship flyer.

In Ohio, the Envirothon is sponsored by the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (OFSWCD) in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Natural resource and environmental specialists from many agencies, organizations, colleges, universities, park districts and businesses devise the Envirothon questions and staff the various test stations.
