Natural Resource Competition for High School Students
2022 Northwest Regional
March 24, 2022
Brightwater Environmental Education Center
Envirothon is North America’s leading environmental education competition, with an estimated 500,000 high school students in the United States and Canada demonstrating their knowledge and problem-solving skills on the topics of aquatic ecology, forestry, soils/land use, wildlife, and a current issue topic.
The annual Envirothon is an excellent opportunity for students to cultivate new skills and learn about resource conservation career opportunities. The Washington State Envirothon Committee will be keeping a close eye on statewide COVID-19 safety protocols and are prepared to accommodate regional and statewide competitions to ensure the health and safety of all involved.
Basic Team Eligibility
- Team members must be registered in grades 9 through 12 for the current school year.
- Teams must consist of five members from the same school, home school group, or local organization, and community clubs welcome, too!
- Each team must have an adult advisor.
The regional competition is held on a weekday. Teams will need to get an excused absence from school to participate. A schedule will be provided ahead of time to registered teams.
Top teams from the NW Regional competition 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 national competition, held in Ohio this July (subject to change due to COVID-19 mandates).
