Good Luck to Envirothon Participants!

In less than a week, students from all over the United States and Canada will converge on Susquehanna University in central PA to take part in a one of a kind environmental competition called the 2012 Canon Envirothon.

From July 24-27th, students will take tests on a variety of environmental subjects, including wildlife, soils, aquatics, forestry and current issues as well as present to judges about low impact development practices.  The competition is supported by conservation districts and various state agencies such as the DCNR Bureau of Forestry,  PA Department of Environmental Protection, PA Fish and Boat Commission, Natural Resource Conservation Service and PA Game Commission, which test students within the boundaries of their environmental specialties.

PA’s team hails from MMI Preparatory school in Luzerne County and recently won both the county Envirothon competition at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands and the State Envirothon competition at the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown.

MetroCasting Channel 10 cameras were on hand at the PPL Susquehanna Riverlands Envirothon event sponsored by the Luzerne County Conservation District. Nearly 200 students from 11 Luzerne County school districts participated in this competition that takes them most of the school year to prepare for. To learn more about the Envirothon competition, you can watch MetroCast Channel 10’s feature story at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands at: or visit

PPL is pleased to  support this environmental education competition and would like to congratulate the teams and wish them good luck in Selinsgrove!
