Washington State Envirothon is an annual environmental and natural resource competition for high school students organized by Washington Conservation Districts. Teams of students compete in five natural resource topic areas, engage with diverse environmental issues, and learn from natural resource professionals. Envirothon participants gain valuable teamwork, communication, and public speaking skills in addition to knowledge and training in ecology and natural resource management principles and practices. Many students step away from the Envirothon experience excited about learning and motivated to pursue careers in environmental studies, environmental law, natural sciences, and natural resource management.
The 2023 Northwest Regional Envirothon competition will be held in person on March 23, 2023, at the Brightwater Environmental Education Center in Woodinville. The top team from each county will move on to compete in the Washington State Envirothon Competition in late May. More details on the state competition are coming soon. The statewide winner will represent Washington at the North American competition, held in New Brunswick this July.
King Conservation District (KCD) is recruiting King County educators and high school students interested in participating in this year’s NW Regional competition. As your local conservation district, KCD will be a helpful resource throughout participating teams’ Envirothon journey. KCD can help organize presentations, curriculum, and workshops with technical experts to help support teams through the Envirothon journey.
