The Envirothon is an environmental competition in which high school students from Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, Robertson, and Stewart Counties demonstrate their knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management.  The teams, each consisting of five high school-aged students exercise their training and problem-solving skills in a competition centered on four universal testing categories (i.e., soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, and wildlife) and a current environmental issue.  The teams can advance through local, regional, state, and national competitions.

Each year, the winning teams from each region in Tennessee travel to a designated location in middle Tennessee for competition at the state level. This competition consists of separate quizzes in each of the five categories followed by a comprehensive question involving all five categories. The comprehensive question is included in both the state competition and the national competition. Students are given resources such as books, pamphlets and videos to study both before and during the state competition to come up with the most effective solution to the problem introduced in the comprehensive question. They will develop and deliver their presentation orally, using audio or visual aids if necessary.
