Utah Envirothon - Sponsored by:  Utah Envirothon Steering Committee

The Utah Envirothon is a competitive two-day state level natural resource education event which tests high school students on their knowledge of natural resources in an outdoor setting. The five-member teams study throughout the year to prepare for the event. Teams are scored by a panel of judges on 10-minute oral presentations on a subject related to a current environmental issue and then participate in five in-the-field test stations to hear presentations by resource professionals and then are tested on their knowledge in five study areas: forestry, soils, aquatics, wildlife and a current environmental issue. Following the state competition, the winning team goes on to a national competition. Reclamation was invited and given the opportunity to participate, by judging this local Envirothon competition.
