Pembroke Hill High School from Kansas City

Wins 2017 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 North American Envirothon (a program of the National Conservation Foundation, 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.


Pembroke Hill High School took the top score in the 2017 Missouri Envirothon.  The 18-team competition took place on April 26 at the University of Missouri Bradford Research Farm in Columbia, Missouri.  Due to the weather, students competed at five different indoor testing stations—aquatic ecology, forestry, soils and land use, wildlife and the 2017 current conservation issue.     The Pembroke team also took high score in the soils, aquatics and current issue resource areas as well as the high score for oral presentations.  Other resource high scores were Smith Cotton High School for the wildlife and Parkway North A Team for forestry. 
Pembroke will go on to represent Missouri at the 2017 National Envirothon being hosted by Maryland this year at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, July 23-29.
