The Envirothon is a unique and challenging natural resources problem-solving competition for high school students throughout the state. Teams of students are tested on environmental topics such as aquatics, wildlife, soils, forestry and a currant environmental issue.  Each year, New Jersey’s winning team becomes our State Representative in the North American Envirothon competition, the largest high school Environmental Education competition.

Participating in the National Envirothon affords students the opportunity to exchange information and experiences with other conservation minded youths from all over North America, as well as gaining New Jersey recognition for its fine Envirothon program.

To help schools in Atlantic and Cape May Counties, the Cape Atlantic Conservation District offers mini-grants to teams who register and participate in event.

If you would like information regarding the Envirothon or District grants, please contact Glenn Ward at (609) 625-3144. For more information about the New Jersey Envirothon, vist their website at www.njenvirothon.org.
