If you are looking for an opportunity to continue supporting this great educational program there are a couple of avenues to do so.
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 both the Manitoba Regional or Provincial Envirothon competitions, a field test and an orals challenge. The trail test is a hands-on, team activity, students apply their combined knowledge to answer Topic questions at a series of stops along a purposely designed trail. 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 also designed for students to come and learn for the day, and can attend but not compete. Students and advisors will have the Manitoba Envirothon experience without as large of a time commitment to studying the resource documents ahead of time if they do not wish to move on to Provincials
All teams must compete at the Regional level in order to advance to the Provincial competition.
