Teams of five students (grades 9-12), representing a school or organization, compete at Indiana Envirothon contests by answering questions and by studying resource problems in each of the five environmental areas which include: soils/land use, aquatic ecology, wildlife, forestry, and a current environmental issue. 

For the state contest, the members are asked to write a research paper and make a video presentation over an integrated water management plan to address water resource management in their community.

Results of the state competition will be announced on April 30.
