2005 State Competition
Keene High School won the NH Envirothon Competition held at Canterbury Shaker Village on May 17, 2005. Hanover High School placed second and Merrimack High School placed third in overall competition.
Based on school size state champions were:
Class-S Champions: The Holderness School of Holderness Class-M Champions: Conant High School of Jaffrey
Class-I Champions: Hanover High School of Hanover
Class-L Champions: Keene High School of Keene.

The students were tested in aquatic science, forestry, soil science, and wildlife, as well as in their knowledge of cultural and scientific issues involving the complex stream ecology and hydrology of removing dams from rivers. The Homestead Woolen Mills dam in West Swanzey was used as a focus of the competition.

Keene High School will go on to represent the State of New Hampshire at the national competition hosted at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri from July 18 - 24, 2005.

Past national competition highlights
Souhegan High School has placed first in this year's NHACD NH Envirothon competition. Keene and Hanover's teams placed second and third (respectively).

The NH Envirothon enhances high school-level environmental education through competition designed to build knowledge of water resources, forests, soils, wildlife, and current issues. Each year a special topic is used to integrate the science curriculum. Working as a team, students are challenged with real-life environmental problems and become more environmentally aware while having fund. They learn about renewable and non-renewable resources and how the various resources and sciences are related. The wining team represents New Hampshire at the International Competition.

In 2002, New Hampshire's team from Keene High School, bested forty seven other teams from Canada and the /United state to win the Canon International Envirothon!
