|Metro Area Envirothon|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
What is an Envirothon?
Both Senior and Junior High students will visit 5 different learning stations, and answer 20 questions at each station. Senior High teams will also visit a sixth station, where they will give a 10-minute oral presentation on a specific scenario, to a panel of judges. The oral presentation scenario is developed before the actual event, so students can prepare visual aids, and other props to assist their presentation. Power point presentations are not allowed, due to lack of electricity.
Who participates in the Metro Area Envirothon?
Teams of 5 students from the same school or organization (i.e. 4-H group) can participate. You can have either a Junior Envirothon team (grades 6-8), or a Senior Envirothon team (grades 9-12), or BOTH! Schools or organizations are allowed to bring more than one team, if there is space available. Each school must have an adult advisor in attendance at the event.
The top 3 teams from the Senior Envirothon will advance to the Minnesota State Envirothon, held the third Monday in May. Currently, there is no state competition for the Junior Envirothon teams.
