Regional EnviroBowl Competition
A Program Hosted by Jacksonville State University’s
Environmental Policy and Information Center

EnviroBowl
JSU’s Environmental Policy and Information Center is proud each year to host the Regional EnviroBowl Competition. The event, sponsored by Legacy, Inc. Partners in Environmental Education, tests the environmental knowledge of Alabama’s high school students.  Teams battle by answering questions on topics such as air quality, chemistry, ecology, forestry, geology, physics, pollution, water quality, and wildlife. 

About Legacy, Inc.
Legacy was created in 1992 by a group of individuals dedicated to providing quality, fact-based environmental education materials to the citizens of Alabama. Today, the organization brings together state and federal agencies, businesses, environmental groups, associations, and concerned citizens to provide comprehensive environmental education programs without duplicating efforts of other organizations. Legacy’s goal is to operate as a true partnership of all groups interested in environmental education, to develop and provide balanced environmental education programs, and to prevent duplication of effort by supporting existing quality environmental education programs. Revenue for Legacy’s environmental education programs comes primarily from the sale of Alabama’s “Protect Our Environment” license tag. Other money comes from the partnership program, donations, corporate sponsors, in-kind donations, grants, and special events.
