The students compete in five categories; soils, wildlife, forestry, water, Indian River Lagoon and a current topic which is selected each year by the Kodak North American Envirothon. The winners from each county go on to the Florida State Envirothon competition and the winners from that competition go on to the Kodak North American Envirothon. The 2010 Indian River Lagoon Envirothon was help February 26, 2010 at Smith Ranch in Okeechobee. The winning team from St. Lucie County, from John Carroll High School, also won the Florida State Envirothon in April and is heading to the Kodak North American Envirothon this summer in San Diego, California.
