What is Envirothon? The Virginia Dominion Energy Envirothon is a team-based natural resources competition for high school students. Students who participate learn stewardship and management concepts and work to solve real-world environmental problems.

The program is field-oriented, community-based, and gives students an opportunity to work with natural resource professionals. Teams consist of five students (plus up to two alternates) and can be created through 4-H clubs, FFA, boy/girl scout troops, or any other organizations. Natural resource professionals make tests for the teams to collaboratively work on in four categories consisting of soils, wildlife, aquatics, and forestry.
