The Centre County Conservation District sponsors the Envirothon, a competition for high school students. The Canon Envirothon is an environmental competition that promotes goals of environmental education in grades 9-12. It recognizes students who achieve excellence in environmental and natural resource knowledge. The Centre County Conservation District sponsors the Envirothon on the local level. Students from school districts throughout the county participate. The District provides study materials, schedules resource personnel and coordinates the day's events at a local park. The winner of the county competition goes on to compete on a statewide level. The winner of the state competition competes with other states and representatives from Canada to capture the national title. The winner of the 2012 Centre County Envirothon was a team from Bald Eagle Area high school. For more information about the Envirothon, call the our office at 355-6817.
