2017 WI Envirothon Winners

2017 Winners

The 2017 Wisconsin Envirothon was held in Rosholt, Wis. at The Wisconsin Lions Camp on Friday, April 7, 2017.  Schools from across the state spent a beautiful spring day testing their knowledge at the various stations where they participated in multiple hands on challenges. Students identified tree species and measured tree diameters in the woods and assessed the engineering and agronomic properties of soils at the soils and land use station. They also identified aquatic invertebrates and invasive plants, as well as wildlife pelts and tracks. Additionally, they tested their classroom knowledge on written exams and gave a team presentation based on this year’s current issue: agricultural soils and water conseration stewardship.  Scores were totaled for each category and the overall winner with highest combined score will move onto the national competition.
