The Manitoba Envirothon Steering Committee is pleased to announce that they are attempting to host the 2018 Manitoba Envirothon  from May 24- 27, 2018 at Churchill Manitoba!  based on interest, a decision will be made in mid December whether to proceed with planning or use the International Peace Garden as an alternate.

The Manitoba Envirothon

For over 20 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. Manitoba 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 Manitoba 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.

Click Here to watch a short video which illustrates what Manitoba Envirothon is.

Regional events are designed for students to come and learn for the day. Students and advisors will have the Manitoba 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.
