Important Program Update

Please be advised that the Manitoba Envirothon, (both 2020 Regional and 2020 Provincial Competitions), will be cancelled in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation.  As a result, the Manitoba Forestry Association will not be sending a team to represent the Province in the upcoming NCF-Envirothon competition which is scheduled be held in Nebraska this summer.

Please note, if you have registered a team to compete this spring, your registration fees will be refunded for this year’s regional competition.

During this one-year hiatus, your Envirothon Steering Committee will continue to refine and develop the program.  Keep an eye on the Envirothon website and social media channels - there will be an exciting announcement regarding the 2021 Provincial Competition before the 2020 school year is out.

We thank you for your ongoing dedication to the program and we wish you and your families good health through these difficult times.

If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Manitoba Forestry Association Office at (204) 453-3182, (204) 471-7363 (cell) or by email at envirocoordinator@thinktrees.org.

2020 Regional Registration Process

All teams MUST register and participate at a Regional event in order to advance to the Provincial competition.

NEW! - Geographic regions will be used to assign schools in particular areas of the Province to one of the 5 Manitoba Envirothon Regional Competitions.

  • Teams will be assigned to their Regional Competition in their geographical region until the maximum for that Regional Competition is reached.
  • Teams from Frontier School Division or band-run schools can choose to participate in their geographical catchment area, or in the Northern Regional event in Thompson or The Pas.
  • Any Team may be assigned to an alternate Regional Competition in the case where the maximum for their normal Regional Competition has been reached when their registration is received, based on the date that both registration form and fee are received.
  • Any Team may request to be assigned to an alternate Regional if extenuating circumstances prevent them from attending the Regional in their geographic area. Requests must be made in advance to the Steering Committee and the Steering Committee reserves the right to approve or deny the request.
  • Teams will normally compete for places at the Provincial Competition with the other Teams at the same Regional Competition, regardless of whether they are assigned to the competition in their geographical region or not.

Competition Fees

Please be advised that Regional and Provincial Envirothon Registration fees will be increasing as indicated below. The Envirothon Steering Committee has managed to keep registration fees artificially low for the past number of years through use of the Canon 2006 Legacy Funds and with the significant financial support of the Manitoba Forestry Association. Due to continued funding challenges, the Manitoba Forestry Association’s ability to cover the rising costs of the program (such as meals , accommodations and insurance) has diminished. The new fee structure brings our registration income closer to recovering our actual hard costs.

Per Team Cost
Regional Registration:
2020 – $ 150.00

Provincial Registration:
2020 – $ 1,200.00
