Have you ever wanted to identify a track left in the mud? A tuft of fur in a bush? Have you ever simply thought about life outside your door, and wondered how it all works?
Envirothon is the largest high school environmental science contest in North America.
It culminates in three area, state and North American competitions, providing the opportunity for students to earn thousands of dollars in scholarship money.
Find four friends, get outside and discover your answers.
Five-member teams, sponsored by Gaston Natural Resources, work together to compete at middle (5th-8th) and high (9th-12th) school levels. These teams train in the areas of soils, aquatics, wildlife, forestry and current environmental issues. Qualifying teams at area levels participate in the state competition. The winning high school team represents the state at the NCF-Envirothon each summer.
