ENVIROTHON is a natural resource problem-solving competition for high school students. In an outdoors setting, students are tested in five natural resource areas: soils, wildlife, forestry, aquatics, and a current issue. Resource information is mailed to schools in the fall so that the teams can prepare for the regional and state competitions held in May. The top Maine team qualifies for the national finals. Grades 9 to 12 are eligible in teams of five, an alternate and an adult advisor. The team can be as small as three students.
