Envirothon

2016 Unity Christian students who competed at Iowa Envirothon.
Envirothon Basics

The Envirothon is a team competition for high school students. It is a problem-solving, natural resource education program for high school students. In the field, teams of five students are challenged to sharpen critical thinking skills and work as a team to conduct hands-on investigations and answer written questions concerning environmental issues in five categories Aquatics, Forestry, Wildlife, Soils, and Current Environmental Issues.

Envirothon Benefits

The Envirothon Provides an incentive for students to integrate and apply knowledge and skills learned in biology, chemistry, earth science, botany, zoology and other science disciplines while stimulating, reinforcing and enhancing students' interest in the environment, related careers, and Iowa's natural resources. Of course, there is also the incentive of travel, scholarships, prizes and prestige!

The Sioux County SWCD will support any school that competes by paying each team's registration fee.
