Maine Envirothon Program
2014 Southwestern Regional was at Marble Farm in Farmington. Spruce Mountain and Dirigo were among the first four top winners. The State champion winning this year was Mount Arrarat High School Team of Topsham.
Envirothon is an Environmental program in a state and nationwide natural resource problem-solving competition for grades 9 - 12. Students compete outdoors in five natural resource areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and a current national environmental issue. Regional and State competitions are held each spring and the top team qualifies for the Canon North American Envirothon finals--an opportunity to compete against teams from across the United States and Canada.
