We also help promote, coach and sponsor teams for the Montana Envirothon competition. The goal of the Envirothon Program is to help students become environmentally knowledgeable, skilled, dedicated citizens who are willing to work individually and collectively toward achieving and maintaining a dynamic equilibrium between the quality of life and the quality of the environment. Participation is open to all students enrolled in grades 9-12 in public, private, or home-school programs. Five students make up a team. The Envirothon covers five natural resource issues: Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Wildlife, Range and a current environmental issue, which changes annually.
The Envirothon for Montana includes a state competition held in Lewistown in April each year. Scholarships are awarded to each team member on the first place team in the amount of $500 each. In addition, each team member on the team with the highest test score will be awarded a $300 scholarship. The winning team from the Montana competition will go on to compete in the National Canon Envirothon.
The CD may fully or partially sponsor up to three Gallatin Valley teams.
Teams from across the U.S. and Canada compete and the location of the event varies each year. For complete information please visit the website below:
