State Envirothon Winners

Buncombe County is home to state winners from the Annual NC State Envirothon! Congratulations team Lab Rats, who placed 1st in oral presentations. The NC Envirothon is an exciting natural resource education program designed to challenge students in an interactive, outdoor competition where middle and high school teams (consisting of 3-5 students) are tested in areas of Wildlife, Forestry, Aquatic Ecology, Soils, and Land Use and Current Environmental Issues. Every year the teams compete in local, regional, and state competitions for the opportunity to compete at the National Envirothon. The 30th annual NC State Envirothon was held on April 29 and 30 in Burlington.

The Envirothon is the largest environmental science competition in North America. The students compete in their knowledge of natural resource management, identification and critical thinking skills relating to environmental concerns. It is a year-long curriculum combining in-class studies with outdoor training, emphasizing teamwork and higher order thinking skills such as analysis and interpretation. The Envirothon helps develop environmentally aware citizens who are able to assume future leadership roles. The Envirothon program is offered to both Middle and High School students. For more information on how to participate in local, regional, and state Envirothon, please visit www.ncenvirothon.org or contact Buncombe Soil and Water Conservation District at 828-250-4787.
