2019 Area I Envirothon

The Area I Envirothon registration is now underway and teams must be registered by
March 24, 2019. The Area I Envirothon is Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at Miller Conservation Farm, Tiffin, Ohio.

The Envirothon is a competitive, academic outdoor event for high school students. The program has a number of goals and objectives, including: to promote greater awareness of natural resources and environmental issues, to heighten understanding of the interrelationships between plants, animals, humans and the environment they share, to celebrate the spirit of competition and excellence, to encourage young people to become action-oriented members of society, to interest students to explore natural resource environmental careers. By preparing for and participating in the Envirothon, students will develop interpersonal skills by working with other student team members in cooperative decision making and problem solving.

The theme for 2019 is Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge and Technology to Feed the World.. This will also be the theme for the State and National Envirothon competitions. The top 4 winning teams advance to the Ohio Envirothon which feature the top 20 teams from the 5 Area Envirothons held in Ohio. The winning team at the Ohio Envirothon then advances to the National competition. You may want to visit the Area I Envirothon site at www.area1envirothon.org for more information and resources. You may also contact Hancock SWCD at 419-422-6569 for further details.
