ANNAPOLIS, Md. — While most high school students are enjoying a well-deserved summer break after a long school year, nearly 100 of Maryland’s brightest teens will be competing at the 29th annual Maryland Envirothon on June 19-20 at St. Mary’s College.
The Envirothon is a demanding two-day, natural resources competition for teens that are passionate about the outdoors and the environment. Student teams will compete in five areas of environmental studies: soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and this year’s environmental issue: Agriculture and Environment: Knowledge & Technology to Feed the World.
The winning team will represent the state later this summer at the national competition in Raleigh, N.C., where more than 250 teenagers from the United States and Canada will compete for scholarships and prizes.
