NCF - Envirothon
http://www.envirothon.org is a competitive learning event for high school-aged students. Envirothon tests the student's knowledge of environmental resources including soils, forestry, wildlife and current environmental issues. For more information visit
How Envirothon works:
Teams of five students, representing a school or organization, compete by answering questions and by studying resource problems in each of the five environmental areas. Before the competition, students study, with their advisors, to develop a greater understanding the environment.
At the Envirothon competition, students test their knowledge under the supervision of environmental instructors. Students use teamwork to develop creative solutions to environmental problems.
Indiana's Regional Envirothon competitions begin in March.
Southwest - Tuesday, March 14, 2017. Toyota Visitors' Center, Princeton IN
South Central - Wednesday, March 8, 2017. Lawrence County 4-H Fairgrounds (Bedford IN)
