The Regional Competition for Envirothon was a major success for Glenwood’s students. Out of the 59 teams there, Glenwood placed fourth and sixth. The top 15 teams at regionals get to compete at state.

Envirothon is a team competition for high school students,” said Instructor Kendra Biermann. “It is a problem-solving, natural resource education program for high school students. In the field, teams of five students are challenged to sharpen critical thinking skills and work as a team to conduct hands-on investigations and answer written questions concerning environmental issues in five categories: Aquatics, Forestry, Wildlife, Soils, and Current Environmental Issues.”

Students in Envirothon study the environment and current environmental issues. “They receive hands-on experiences, work with different tools in that occupation,” said Biermann. “Students are provided study materials and must study on their own outside of the school day.”

The Envirothon Competition includes a test about everything the students learned. The test scores are compared to other teams and determine what teams move on.

“I joined Envirothon because it will help me with the career I chose for my future job,” said junior Sydney Biermann. “I have learned a lot from joining. I have been taught how to clean up water pollution, clear trees for new forest growth, how to build a prairie habitat and the list goes on.”
