What is Envirothon
So, what Is Envirothon?
The Vermont Envirothon mission is to connect students to the natural resources of their community. We introduce students to the local and state contacts and organizations who manage, monitor, and mentor natural and human resources. Envirothon has a focus on aquatics, forestry, soils, and wildlife with an annual topical issue that ties all of the study issues together.“This year, the current issue is “Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge and Technology to Feed the World.” Each of the Envirothon’s five areas contains a variety of activities with content addressed in the Vermont Framework of Standards and Learnfing Opportunities for both fields of Knowledge and Vital Results using multiple learning opportunities.
Envirothon teams receive an information-filled resource guide and trainings with resource professionals. This year’s specific events include a training day on April 3, 2019 at Marsh Billings Rockefeller NHP & Billings Farm and Museum in Woodstock and the Vermont Envirothon competition on May 22, 2019 at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, VT. The team that scores highest in all areas at the competition will represent the state at NCF-Envirothon, the North American competition. This event will be held this year at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC on July 28-August 2, 2019.
We encourage registration as early as possible to provide students with enough time to become familiar with the topics. Looking for more information? Contact Stacey via the link below.
