Envirothon

What is Envirothon?

Envirothon is a fun academic event for Allegheny County high school students. 

This event challenges students to think critically about the natural world and their roles in it. Envirothon combines in-class curriculum and outdoor training, helping students learn more about aquatic ecology, forestry, soil and land use, wildlife and current environmental issues.
 

Why Envirothon?

  • The event fosters leadership, problem-solving and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) principles.
  • Many Envirothon advisors credit the event with increasing student interest and involvement in environmental sciences.
  • Winning teams will represent Allegheny County at the state event with an opportunity to compete nationally in the largest environmental education competition in North America.
  • Competition day offers the opportunity to boost resumes and network with environmental professionals. 

Scholarships

Envirothon inspires students to pursue further education in environmental fields and awards scholarships to winning teams. 

ACCD's goal is to increase scholarships at the 2023 event, expanding access to education and motivating students across the county. Help acheive this goal by becoming an event sponsor
