The Envirothon consists of five outdoor learning stations including soils, wildlife, water resources, forestry and current environmental issues. Teams include three to five high school students that compete on the environmental subjects. Each team has approximately 25 minutes at each station where they work together to answer the questions asked by the natural resource professional. Each team is also responsible for a ten minute oral presentation about the current environmental issue.
The Area VII Envirothon is sponsored by the eleven county SE Minnesota Soil and Water Conservation Districts (Freeborn, Mower, Fillmore, Houston, Winona, Olmsted, Dodge, Rice, Wabasha, Goodhue and Steele.) The top three teams will compete at the state level.
