Current Issue: Water Resource Management: Local Control and Local Solutions


May 11, 12, and 14 2021

Virtual Competition


The Virtual North Dakota State Envirothon Competition will be held May 11, 12, and 14, 2021.  This year's competition will look different than years past, but the North Dakota State Envirothon Committee is working hard to mimic a traditional event as much as possible. 


On the first day of the competition (May 11), teams of 5 students rotate through trails where they are tested on their knowledge of soils, wildlife, aquatics and prairie using the virtual platform Quia.  Advisor are not allowed to help answer questions on the virtual trail test.  


On the second day (May 12), the current issue challenge question is revealed and teams have time to prepare an oral presentation video recording detailing a solution to the question.  Oral presentations videos will be shared to a panel of three judges, and scores are added to the trail test scores to determine the top three teams.


On May 14, the top three teams then again give their presentation to the entire assembly of students and three-five experts in the current issue topic.  Final total combined scores determine the winning North Dakota Envirothon team who will advance to the North American Envirothon Competition.


Please register by February 28, 2021 to compete in the Virtual 2021 ND State Envirothon Competition.
