Delaware held its first State ENVIROTHON challenge in the Spring of 1996. Organizational plans for this environmental team building and educational experience began in 1994. Many private, state, and federal agencies and organizations work collectively to prepare advisor and student training workshops. Resource Notebooks are available as aides in support of the Delaware ENVIROTHON. Also, resource trunks are available in all Conservation District offices for Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Soil/Land Use, Oral Presentation, Wildlife and the current environmental issue. These are loaned out to teams for use in their training. This web site is another example of our commitment to helping secure environmental education throughout Delaware high schools.

Delaware ENVIROTHON's goals include:

Promote environmental awareness and stewardship.

Develop students' critical thinking, cooperative problem solving,
and decision-making skills.

Present balanced options for management of our renewable
and non-renewable natural resources.

Provide awareness of and accessibility to resource organizations
offering assistance in environmental issues.
