What is the

Manitoba Envirothon

The Manitoba Envirothon is an annual hands-on environmental education competition for high school students, designed to encourage team work, problem-solving skills, and public speaking skills while fostering an appreciation for current environmental issues.

Envirothon combines the exhilaration of team competition, the challenge of learning about environmental issues, and the experience of using this knowledge in hands-on activities. This approach to environmental education helps students develop skills necessary to address environmental issues, such as team work, problem-solving, critical thinking, and public debate

How to

GET STARTED


Select An Advisor

Every Envirothon team needs an advisor. An advisor can be a high school teacher, parent, or youth leader who becomes the team leader.

Create A Team

An Envirothon team is composed of five grade 9-12 students. Some are self-selected students with an interest, while others compete within their school for a place on the team.

Register & Pay Fee

Once an advisor is identified he/she should talk to your school about the registration fee – $150 for the regional event and $1,200 for the provincial event and missing days of school.
