Wisconsin Envirothon is our state’s ultimate middle and high school environmental science challenge, where teams of five high school or middle school students participate in the hands-on, outdoor field challenges designed by natural resources professionals and educators. This day-long event is an excellent opportunity for students to develop leadership and communication skills that champion a more sustainable and environmentally-aware community.
Teams take exams based on four categories: Forestry, Soils/Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, and Wildlife. In addition, teams create group presentations based on a pre-selected, topical conservation issue that local conservation professionals are dealing with across the state. The team presentations help students articulate today’s critical environmental concerns and develop the skills to communicate the conservation ethic in whatever scholastic, career, or civic choices lie ahead. Winners advance to the North American Envirothon/Regional Envirothon to compete in scholarships and prizes.
