Envirothon
The Envirothon is a fun, environmental learning competition for teams of up to 5 students in grades 9 through 12. Students answer questions at five stations to test their knowledge of wildlife, forestry, soils, aquatic environments, and current environmental issues. Our local competition is held jointly with the Crawford County Conservation District in May of each year at Pymatuning State Park, and the winning team goes on to the state competition. The state winner proceeds to the national event. Students study after school, with a teacher acting as the team advisor. A materials list and study materials are provided. A school may have more than one team entered into the competition. Interested teachers or students may learn more about the Envirothon by visiting www.envirothonpa.org



Pymatuning-Shenango Watershed Challenge

The Pymatuning/Shenango Watershed Challenge is an environmental education competition held annually at Munnell Run Farm for students in grades 6-8. The idea is simple the event combines the concepts of hands-on education with the exhilaration of a good competition and the fun of spending a day in the great outdoors. Students, scout groups, 4-H clubs, and home school groups located within the Shenango River Watershed (Mercer, Crawford and Lawrence Counties in PA and Ashtabula and Trumbull County in OH) are eligible to enter up to two teams of 3 to 5 students. Participants are tested on their knowledge of natural resources in the following categories: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Watersheds and Wildlife. Contest rules, reference materials, registration forms, and prizes will be provided by the Penn Ohio Watershed Association and its partners.
