Winning Teams from 13 Maryland Counties to Compete at Clarksville Research Farm

ANNAPOLIS, MD – (June 16, 2022) –While most high school students have tossed their backpacks aside for the summer, nearly 100 Maryland teens will be competing at the 31st annual Maryland Envirothon on June 22, 2022. The Envirothon is a demanding outdoor 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 – Waste to Resources.

The winning team will represent the state later this summer at the national competition at Miami University in Ohio, where more than 250 teenagers from the United States and Canada will compete for scholarships and prizes.
