What is Envirothon?

Envirothon is a program for high school students to learn more about our natural environment. The spirit of competition motivates athletes, drives successful businesses and stimulates new ideas.
Envirothon tests the student's knowledge on topics such as:
  • Soils
  • Water resources
  • Forestry
  • Wildlife
  • Current environmental issues.
Each year there is a statewide competition! 

The 2023 SC Envirothon Season will kick off with Coaches Training on Saturday, February 4, 2023 in Columbia, SC at the Sandhill Research and Education Center. This is a free training that will include what to expect competition day, the current topic scenario, and potential exam materials. Coaches are not obligated to bring a team if attending this training! Registration is required for this workshop. Registration forms are due to Deanne Myrick (myrickd@dnr.sc.gov) by Monday, January 30, 2023.

SC Envirothon 2023 Competition with a current topic of Adapting to a Changing Climate will be held Friday, April 28, 2023. Registration packets are due by Monday, April 3, 2023 (SC Envirothon Competition Registration)
