Peterborough-Kawarthas-Northumberland Region Envirothon

What is the Envirothon?

The Ontario Envirothon is part of the larger North American Envirothon program.
The program is broken down into Regional Competitions that take place across Ontario and then an Ontario Envirothon Championship that sees the winner from each region come together to compete for the provincial title. Winners of the Ontario Envirothon Championship represent the province at the North American Envirothon Championship that takes place in the summer. Students have the opportunity to win unique prizes and scholarships at all levels along the way.

When is the Envirothon?

We are currently working to determine a date and time for the Envirothon. 

Connecting the Envirothon to CCAP

The Envirothon will engage high school students in learning about the natural environment, the impacts of climate change on each of the four core issues, with a current issue on sustainable agriculture. 

The Envirothon will also touch on some of the actions outlined in the CCAP including and not limited to: youth engagement, fostering a culture of awareness, encouraging civic engagement, protecting and enhancing natural assets, facilitating best management practices for low emissions farming, and supporting localization of the food system.
