This annual competition is about challenging our youth to learn and understand more about all facets of their world: soil, water, wildlife and forestry. Successful competitors are those who engage in teamwork with a winning attitude!

The Envirothon is also about having fun and coming together to share ideas. Students gain many of the tools needed to become effective future decision makers, as they learn to respect different opinions and values about the environment. A network of professionals from several environmental agencies join us for the day and explain how they tackle real life challenges to change our world for the best. 

County-level Envirothons are held each year throughout Pennsylvania. Winning high-school teams at this level go on to compete at a state-sponsored event, where winners advance to the International Envirothon, with a chance to win thousands in college scholarships.

The goals of this program are:
• To teach students about how our actions
  affect our environment
• To encourage involvement by each student within
   their local community
• To encourage students’ environmental sensitivity
  and awareness
• To help students develop an understanding of 
  ecological systems and the connectedness these
  systems share.
• To help students develop skills needed to become
  part of the solution to local and global environmental

The Envirothon is sponsored each year
by Lions Clubs International, Region II, District 14-U. Thanks to their loyal support, students enjoy a well-organized and coveted awards.
