Envirothon is an academic science competition where each school can send two teams of five students each. The five students work together on taking five science based tests. Every year they are tested on Forestry, Soils, Aquatics, Wildlife and a fifth category that changes. In the past few years, the 5th category has been Prairies, Estuaries, and the most recently, Sustainable Rangeland Managment.

The mission of the North American Envirothon is to develop knowledgeable skilled and dedicated citizens who have an understanding of natural resources and are willing and prepared to work towards achieving and maintaining a balance between the quality of life and the quality of the environment. The Envirothon mission is accomplished by developing in young people an understanding of the principles and practices of natural resource management and ecology and through practice dealing with complex resource management decisions. The following goals and objectives should be used as a guide to develop effective curricula, educational resources, and testing scenarios.
