The Envirothon is open to all 9-12th grade students and encourages high school students to learn more about the natural environment. The contest challenges students’ knowledge on aquatics, forestry, wildlife, range, soils, land use and natural resource policy or issues and one special topic of national interest. Five-member teams compete in a setting where they learn that cooperation is needed to achieve success.

Each year several regional Envirothon contests are held across Nebraska by Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts. The winning team from each regional competition is invited to represent their region at the Nebraska State Envirothon Competition. An additional eight wildcard teams are also invited. The state champion goes on to represent Nebraska at the National Envirothon contest which will be in Athens, Georgia in August 2014. Members of the top ten teams will be awarded National Scholarships that can be used toward a four year university, two year college or trade school.
