Envirothon

Maine Envirothon

The 2020 Regional, State and National Envirothon were cancelled due to COVID-19. Plans are underway for the 2021 event!

Envirothon is a state and nationwide natural resource problem-solving competition for grades 9-12. Students compete outdoors in five natural resource areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and a current national environmental issue. The teams are led by volunteer advisors who help students prepare for the tests. Winning teams from all over the state will meet to compete at the state level.
