On Thursday, March 14th, 10 Lisle HS students competed in the 2024 Northeastern IL Envirothon at the Morton Arboretum. This is our 2nd year participating. Last year we also finished 1st in the county and 2nd overall. Back-to-back champions!

Team 1: Anika M, Cynthia G, Fatima T, Gracie M, and Hannah Z earned first place in DuPage County and second place in the Northeastern IL region. Team 2: Christine I, Kimberly V, Esperanza G, Lizzy H and Cadence D finished 6th in the county and 15th overall. This year's Envirothon included 25 teams from 18 schools in the following counties: Cook, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, Winnebago, and Will.

The Envirothon is a competitive, problem-solving natural resource event for high school students. The competition (a) tests a student's environmental knowledge and understanding as it relates to current natural resources issues, (b) gets students interested in post-secondary environmental fields of study or future careers, (c) provides students the opportunity to work together as a team and enhance their communication skills. 

Teams of five students prepare throughout the winter with study materials provided by the Envirothon committee focusing on topics in aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and a current environmental issue. Teams move through each topic station in a timed rotation.

Students listened to a 20-minute presentation from a professional in the topic's field at stations. Following each presentation, teams complete a written test and lab practical. Teams are also required to give a 7-minute oral presentation to a panel of judges addressing the theme "Renewable Energy for a Sustainable Future."
