Fort Osage High School from Independence

Wins 201 Missouri Envirothon!

The Missouri Envirothon Program consists of 7 regions across the state with each regional holding a competition either in the fall or early spring.  The top three teams from each of these regional competitions advance to the state competition, the Missouri Envirothon.  The state competition is held in the central part of the state in late April or early May.  The winning Missouri Envirothon team will represent Missouri at the National Conservation Foundation Envirothon, the largest North American natural resource competition.  The Envirothon is held in varying locations across the United States and Canada with teams from Canadian Provinces and Territories as well as the majority of the United States. 

Envirothon teams consist of 5 students from grades 9-12.  They compete at outdoor stations testing on aquatic ecology, soils/land use, forestry, wildlife, and a current environmental issue.  There is also an oral component with the students presenting their solution to the problem they were given concerning the current issue topic for the year.
