What is the Envirothon?

The Envirothon is a yearly competition for students in grades 9-12 to demonstrate their knowledge of the environment and natural resources. Students, in teams of 5, are tested on their knowledge of soil and land use, wildlife, forestry, aquatic ecology, and a current environmental issue.

The contest is a great opportunity for students to gain practical, hands-on skills that will be useful throughout their careers. Students have the chance to improve their teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving while participating. Envirothon connects students to professional, seasoned experts, inspiring the next generation of environmental professionals.

Poster Contest

An annual NACD and NACD Auxiliary poster contest  that is open to youth in grades K-12.  It provides students with a chance to have their art displayed as part of a national conservation outreach initiative. Each year, the winning posters reflect NACD’s annual Stewardship theme, and highlight the work of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries, and agencies to protect and enhance natural resources. The contest starts at the district level; winners advance to the state level, and then to the national level, where they receive recognition at NACD’s annual meeting.  

Theme for 2023 is “One Water.”
