The Tampa Bay Regional Envirothon
TAMPA BAY REGIONAL ENVIROTHON

The Tampa Bay Regional Envirothon, or "environmental olympics" allows high school students
in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties the opportunity to use what they have learned in the
classroom to resolve environmental issues in the field. Both teachers and students enjoy the
Envirothon’s in-class learning that combines hands-on, outdoor activities. Student teams are
exposed to scientists and experts in the field who coach and guide their learning experience.
Teams then compete in local Envirothons and winners advance to state/provincial/territorial
contests. Top teams head to the North American Envirothon, a week-long culminating competition
hosted by one of the states/provinces/territories in North America, where over $100,000 in
scholarships and prizes are awarded. Through the program, students develop an understanding
of effective teamwork, resource management and ecology. At the same time, they gain
valuable exposure to a range of disciplines and possible career paths.

Teams are tested on their knowledge in five categories:






Teams will also be tested on their verbal skills concerning the Current Environmental Issue:
