It is with heavy hearts, because of the continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and the unique challenges it poses to schools and communities across Pennsylvania and around the world, the Pennsylvania Envirothon Board of Directors decided to cancel the State Competition scheduled to be held May 19 and 20. This decision was not easy, but it was made in the best interest of the health and safety of its participants (students and teachers), volunteers, agency partners, sponsors, and many others.
We believe the decision was made for us through the Governor’s Emergency Order as well as the following information provided by school administrators stating that if and when schools reopen, schools will not permit student travel to outside events, which includes Envirothon competitions.
With this in mind, we are working on some “natural challenges” to keep Envirothon teams engaged as we prepare for the 2021 Envirothon season. Watch for more details in the next several weeks.
We appreciate your understanding. If you have questions, please email Pennsylvania Envirothon Executive Director, Lorelle Steach.
