Dear Envirothon Advisors,
The 2022 Envirothon Field Day Competition will be held on Thursday May 19th at Tolland Agricultural Center (TAC), 24 Hyde Avenue, Vernon, CT 06066.
The day will run from approximately 7:15 AM to 2:00 PM. Please arrive as close to 7:15 AM as you can (see draft schedule linked HERE). Promptly at 7:40, we will start adding wild card students to chaperoned groups, etc. So, by 7:40, students will have to leave cell phones, any “smart” electronics (smart watches included), and backpacks with you; “refreshed” themselves, put on t-shirts; and report to their testing chaperones. When the horn sounds at 8:10 AM, students must be on the course, at the testing stations, and will start taking the test.
As soon as possible, please let me know – whether or not – you plan to have a team participate in the event. We need to rent tents, tables, chairs, & reserve food!
Also, Wednesday by May 4th, please send the following info (I am happy to get the info in segments if you don’t have it all at once.)
Names of participating students (regular competing team members 4-5 students and up to 3 “wild card” participants). If you have less than 4 students, they will be combined with other students on a wild card team. Wild card teams will not do a current issue presentation.
T-shirt sizes for you and your competing team members.
I’ll be sending out more info soon. Hope to hear that you all can attend!
Additionally, here is a link to the advisor zoom that we had on March 17th, each station leader reviews what their tests entail: https://youtu.be/
