The 2017 NC Envirothon competition will be held on April 28-29, 2017 at Cedarock Park, Alamance County, NC.
Volunteers are NEEDED! The NC Envirothon competition can average about 500 students, parents and teachers attending the 2 day event, so we need a lot of people willing to help us pull off an event this size. There are a multitude of jobs to fill on both days. Come help for both days or just one if you can't make it to both days.
The NC Envirothon is an annual competition for high school and middle school students. The program consists of one-day area competitions held in March or early April and a two-day state competition held in late April or early May. The number of teams participating at area competitions is unlimited. The top seven (7) scoring teams in each area, plus the top scoring FFA team, compete at the state competition to represent NC at the National Conservation Foundation (NCF) Envirothon, a 5-day competition held in July or August. The NCF Envirothon hosts teams from participating states and Canadian provinces who have won their state or provincial event. Teams at the NCF Envirothon compete for recognition and scholarships by demonstrating their knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management.
The NC Envirothon has been providing quality education and enrichment opportunities to North Carolina students for 25 years. A leader in natural resource, ecology and environmental education, the Envirothon has been helping to develop NC’s leaders for the future.
