2023 event: April 20th and 21st at Cacapon Resort State Park in Morgan County
What is the Envirothon?
The West Virginia Envirothon is a conservation education program and competition for students in grades 9 through 12. The West Virginia Envirothon focuses on five subject areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and a current environmental topic. By participating in the Envirothon program students learn about West Virginia's diverse ecosystem and how they can help conserve and protect it for future generations.
How can I participate?
To participate in the West Virginia Envirothon, you must first put together a team of five students and one adult advisor/chaperone. Teams can be created through school clubs, home school groups, classes, 4-H groups, scout troops, etc. The next step is to register your team for the upcoming West Virginia Envirothon, get your study materials and prepare for the competition. Teams are tested on their natural resource knowledge, skills, and problem-solving abilities.
