Area 3 Envirothon

Annually RSWCD sponsors teams to compete in the Area 3 Regional Envirothon in early spring (usually in March or April).  The competition is open to Middle and High school students – Grades 5-12.  The Envirothon is a multidisciplinary, environmental problem- solving program culminating in an annual series of competitions. Teams of five (5) high school students and teams of five (5) middle school students train and compete in the following areas:  Soils, Aquatics (Water Quality), Wildlife, Forestry and Current Environmental Issues. 

The Envirothon Objectives are to test the environmental knowledge and understanding of middle and high school students of state resource issues and to cultivate within students in middle and high schools across the state, a desire to learn more about their natural world. 

Teams must compete in the AREA competition and place within the top seven in order to compete at the STATE level. 

The Area 3 Envirothon will be held in March of each year at Elon University.
