•  The Chester County Envirothon competition is part of the Pennsylvania Envirothon Program, which helps students understand the natural environment and their role in it. The Envirothon program provides a means for students to demonstrate what they know about the environment. It is a cumulative process that addresses the learning levels of awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and application. Students who participate in the Envirothon will demonstrate an understanding of environmental concepts, of how human activity impacts the environment, and of how people can work together as partners in conservation practices to enhance their lives and quality of life by protecting the environment.
