At the Envirothon, teams of students compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas – Soils and Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and Environmental Issues. A current environmental issue is chosen each year as the “hot topic” for the focus of this station as well as the oral presentation component.
At the local level, students compete at Laurel Hill State Park against other Somerset County schools answering questions about their topic. The team to score the most points advances to the Pennsylvania Envirothon state competition.
