Pennsylvania Envirothon is proud to host one of the state’s largest natural resource education competitions. Envirothon provides thousands of students with the knowledge and tools necessary to address the natural resource challenges facing today’s world. Out of concern for all Envirothon participants (students, advisors, and volunteers), we sadly will not hold an “in-person” 2021 Pennsylvania Envirothon State Competition.
Rather than an in-person event, we are excited to announce Pennsylvania Envirothon will hold a virtual State Competition that will include station testing and an oral presentation component. The Envirothon is a “team” competition, and the 2021 event will be held as such. Teams will compete for scholarships and prizes, just as they would at a traditional event.
We see this as an opportunity to continue the mission of the Envirothon as well as to promote environmental literacy. This virtual competition allows Envirothon students to utilize technology as they, as a team, work through the station resources and compete online. It may not be the outdoor experience that we relish, but we are committed to making the 2021 virtual Envirothon a worthwhile experience for all participants.
