Nebraska Envirothon

Nebraska Envirothon

The Nebraska Envirothon is a competition designed for high school students (9-12th grades) to test their knowledge about the environment. Five-member teams compete on the regional level in seven areas of environmental studies: soil, aquatics, forestry, policy, wildlife, range, environmental policy and current issue. For the state competition an oral presentation on a topic selected by the NCF-Envirothon Committee is added to the testing stations.

Why take the time to organize and coach a team for this competition? More and more careers are being created that deal with the environment. This is an excellent opportunity to give your students some additional background in the environment and exposure to environmental careers.


What makes the Envirothon different from other extra-curricular activities students already participate in? The Nebraska Envirothon competition gives your students the chance to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it to life. Students are given the chance to interact with resource professionals who use the knowledge they gained in high school and college every day in their career. The Envirothon shows students the link between academics and the business world.

The NCF-Envirothon is an annual high school competition hosted in July or August. To expose students to diverse environmental issues, ecosystems, and topography the NCF-Envirothon is hosted in a different location each year. Teams, each consisting of five members, compete for recognition and scholarships by demonstrating their knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management at five testing stations and finish with a 20-minute oral presentation. For more information, contact Megan Grimes at mgrimes [at] or 402-471-7672.
