Each year, local high school students compete in this outdoor environmental competition which tests their knowledge in six subject areas: soils, forestry, aquatics, wildlife, current environmental issues, and problem solving.

The spirit of competition stimulates students’ interests in environmental concerns and motivates them to further develop their skills and grow into environmentally-aware, action-oriented adults.

Envirothon activities begin locally with teams of five 9th through 12th grade students competing for their County Envirothon title. Local competitions are sponsored by their Conservation Districts, with a helping hand from local environmental recreational civic groups and businesses.

The winning team goes on to represent Cortland County at the State Envirothon Competition.
