Susquehanna U. To Host Canon International Envirothon In July, Sponsorships Available

2012 marks the 25th anniversary of Envirothon, the international competition in which teams of high school students from the U.S. and Canada test their knowledge of the environment.  And what better way to celebrate than to have the anniversary celebration in Pennsylvania where Envirothon started!
            The 2012 Canon Envirothon will be held at Susquehanna University in Sellinsgrove, Pa from July 22-27.
            In last year's competition, 54 teams represented almost every state and several Canadian provinces and were hosted by Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada.
            In Pennsylvania, high school teams compete at the county-level to represent the Commonwealth at the national Envirothon.  In 2011, Penncrest High School from Delaware County took the honors.
            Pennsylvania has won the national Envirothon 11 times in the last 23  national competitions-- 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2009.
