Congratulations to The Mount Academy:
Winners of the 2016 Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon
About the Envirothon
A five-member team of high school students work together to compete on five environmental topics. They are tested on their knowledge of Soils, Aquatics, Forestry, Wildlife, and Current Issues. They also give a 5-minute oral presentation on a problem solving scenario related to the year's current issue topic. The primary goal of the Envirothon is to learn about the natural environment we live in so as to become stewards of the land. In preparation for the event, students develop research skills, practice team building, and gain an appreciation for consensus decision making.
The Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon incorporates schools from ten counties including: Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster, Sullivan, and Westchester. The Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon takes place yearly in April at Sharpe Reservation in Fishkill, NY. The highest scoring school from each county advances to the New York State Envirothon.
There is no cost to the students, parents, or schools to participate, outside of providing the necessary transportation to the event site. For more information about the program contact Tonnie Sauca from Dutchess County Soil & Water Conservation District at (845) 677-8011 x3.
Registration for 2017 Available NOW!!
Any high school within the ten county region is welcome to register. Please submit the Registration form to Tonnie Sauca either by email, fax, or mail. Modeling and Medical forms can be brought with you on the day of the event.

The Mount Academy takes 1st & 2nd, Ossining is 3rd.
The 2016 Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon took place Thursday, April 14 at Sharpe Reservation in Fishkill, NY. Nineteen teams from five counties in the Hudson Valley competed. The Mount Academy from Ulster County took the top two spots with Ossining High School (Westchester Co) claiming third. Rounding out the top five spots were teams from Westchester and Columbia Counties, John Jay High School (4th) and Ichabod Crane High School (5th). The point totals were extremely close behind 1st place with only one or two questions separating each team in the Top 5 so we had some tremendous competition!!! The Mount Academy has now won the Hudson Valley Regional Envirothon for the last SIX years!!!!! The Mount Academy also won the 2011-2016 New York State Envirothon and won the 2013 North American Envirothon!!!
