Teams of five students will first participate in one of five area competitions throughout Ohio. The winning team advancing to the state competition, in June. The top, winning, ecological experts in representing each state, will participate in the national competition. The Envirothon tests students' knowledge of natural resources in the categories of: soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatics, and current environmental issues. Students compete through team problem solving activities, in each of the five categories.
