State/Provincial/Partner Nation Competitions
The first step for any team participating in the NCF-Envirothon is to participate in their local state, provincial or national Envirothon competition!
Participating states, provinces and partner nations will conduct their own local Envirothon programs and competitions each year. The Envirothon program is structured to allow participating 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 on the five areas of study: aquatic ecology, forestry, soils/land use, wildlife and current environmental issues.

(Within some states and provinces, the local Envirothon program will include smaller “regional” or “area” competitions that serve as qualifying events for their state or provincial competition.)
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/Partner Nation Envirothon competition is the qualifying event for participating in the NCF-Envirothon annual international competition. The winning team from each Envirothon competition 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.
