The Manitoba Envirothon
For 17 years the Manitoba Forestry Association has offered the Manitoba Envirothon which has provided Manitoba's high school students a unique and fun way to learn about the environment and current issues. Envirothon is a hands-on learning program which helps students develop important skills such as critical thinking, study skills and team work.
There are two components to the Envirothon competition, a field test and an orals competition. The trail test is a hands on activity, students apply their knowledge to answer questions in the field. The oral competition combines public speaking with the students' learning experiences to develop and present a solution to a current environmental issue.

Regional events are designed for students to come and learn for the day. Students and advisors will have the Envirothon experience without as large of a time commitment to studying the resource documents ahead of time.
All teams must compete at the Regional level in order to advance to the Provincial competition.
