State, Provincial and Partner Nation Envirothon Programs
The first step for any team participating in the NCF-Envirothon is to participate in their local state, provincial or national Envirothon competition!
NCF-Envirothon Member Programs (state, provincial and partner nation Envirothon programs) will organize and conduct their own local Envirothon educational programs and competitions each year. The Envirothon is structured to allow participating member programs maximum flexibility to individualize their competitions to suit local needs and opportunities, but all will consist of high school students, grades 9-12 (ages 14-19), studying and testing in the five areas of study: aquatic ecology, forestry, soils/land use, wildlife and current environmental issues.
(Within some state and provincial programs, the local Envirothon program may include smaller “regional” or “area” competitions that serve as qualifying events for their state-wide or provincialwide competitions. Additionally, some may also offer Middle School Envirothon competitions for students.)
Guided by an Advisor (often a teacher, mentor, parent, natural resource professional or other educator), students work in teams of five to develop knowledge and skills to excel in the competitions.
The State, Provincial and Partner Nation Envirothon competitions are the qualifying event for participating in the NCF-Envirothon annual international competition. The winning team from each is eligible to attend the NCF-Envirothon for recognition, awards and scholarships.
All NCF-Envirothon annual international competition participants will have first participated in their local state, provincial or partner nation Envirothon competition.
