An Envirothon is an outdoor, hands-on learning experience for high school students. It centers around five different learning sta- tions (soils, wildlife, waterresources, forestry, and current environmental issues) each of which are staffed by professionals on that subject. At each station, teams com- posed of 4-5 students answer ques- tions on the subject. Since the event takes place outdoors, questions involve actual contact with natural resources, rather than a "paper and pencil" approach. After finishing at one station, the team moves on to the next station. Approximately 25 minutes is spent at each station. An oral presentation is also part of the day's activities. A situation is given to students in a letter that was sent out in January. The stu- dents had from January to April to research the situation and answer the questions asked in the form of a presentation. The day of the Enviro- then the students had eight to nine minutes to make the oral presenta- tion. This oral presentation prob- lem is the same as the one used at the State Envirothon.
