The NC Envirothon is a multi-disciplinary, environmental problem-solving program culminating in annual regional and state spring competitions. Five-member teams from middle and high schools are sponsored by the conservation district. These teams train and compete in the areas of soils, aquatics, wildlife, forestry and current environmental issues.
Qualifying teams at the regional level participate in a state competition. The winning high school team represents NC at the N. American competition held each summer.
NC participation in this national program began in 1991. Teams are provided with reference material and participate in hands-on training to acquire the knowledge and skills needed in each of the testing areas. The N. American Envirothon is sponsored by Canon USA and local conservation districts in partnership with Monsanto, the US Forest Service and the National Association of Conservation Districts.
