Manitoba Envirothon

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. 

New for 2022

**Only full teams of 5 students from the same school, non-traditional school or youth organization will be eligible to represent Manitoba at the 2022 NCF-Envirothon as per NCF-Envirothon Rules and Regulations.

Security Answer:

Team Intro Videos

Your team is encouraged to submit a Team Intro Video. This is one of the Envirothon highlights!! Your video will be shown during the Opening Ceremonies. This is your opportunity to introduce yourselves, your team, your school, your community, and basically your overall awesome-ness.

Videos will be a MAX of 1 minute. Please do not exceed this timeline.

Submit video to byrnes@spectra-productions.com by April 29, 2022. Be sure to include your team name/school in the email submission.

Please include the following in your video:

  • School name
  • Team member names
  • Team member disciplines

It’s time to get creative with your video!

In the past we have seen many approaches such as:

  • Song introductions
  • Jokes (the nerdier, the better!)
  • Skits 
  • Showcasing your community 
  • Interesting or weird facts 
  • Animations 
  • Costumes
  • Dancing

Have fun creating your team intro video- we look forward to seeing them!!

Field Test Q&A

This year, we are taking a different approach to our Field Test Training. Teams have already viewed the existing training videos, and studied the resources extensively. Now, it’s your turn to tell us what you need!

As a team, please complete the Field Test Q&A form before May 2, 2022.

Then, our team of experts will address all questions, re-explain concepts, showcase hands-on equipment and whatever else you need. You will receive the specialized response videos by May 9, 2022.

The Field Test Q&A form for your team to complete is found here:

Please Note:
If your team does not submit a Field Test Q&A form by May 2, 2022, it will be understood that your team does not have any questions/clarifications for our discipline experts.

In-Person Celebration

We are SO excited to be hosting an in-person celebration event! This event will be on Friday, May 27, 2022 at FortWhyte Alive in Winnipeg. This event is not a part of the formal Envirothon competition (teams do not need to attend the celebration to compete equally in the Manitoba Envirothon). 

NCF International Envirothon

The NCF Envirothon is being hosted in person at the Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The event takes place July 24-30. The Theme is Waste to Resources. Find out more information here: 


Among other prizes and awards, our First Place Manitoba Envirothon team of 5 students will receive sponsorship to attend the NCF Envirothon in Ohio! 

Alternatively, teams can choose to receive educational scholarships in lieu of the NCF Envirothon event. This will be a team decision to be made after our Manitoba Envirothon event. 

The winning Manitoba Envirothon team will need to determine if they are attending the NCF Envirothon by June 1, 2022.
