Envirothon

Envirothon

The 14th Armstrong County Envirothon will held at the “Outdoor Discovery Center” (formerly the Crooked Creek Environmental Learning Center) on Wednesday April 24, 2019.  Schools and home schoolers from Armstrong County participate in this event designed to give students an opportunity to acquire and demonstrate their knowledge of environmental resources and their connection to each other and human activities.

At the Envirothon, teams of five high school students compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas – Soils and Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and Environmental issues. A current environmental issue is chosen each year as the “hot topic” for the focus of this station as well as the oral presentation component.   2019 Current Environmental issue is, Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge and Technology to Feed the World.

Winners from the local competition will move onto the Pennsylvania Envirothon state competition that will be held at the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown on May 21 and 22, 2019.
