Envirothon is an environmental competition that promotes goals of environmental education in high school and recognizes students who achieve excellence in environmental and natural resource knowledge.

Participants score points by answering questions correctly on topics such as forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology, soils and land use, and current issues at five stations.

Sixty-four teams participated at the state level with a winning team from Penncrest High School in Delaware County.
