Take Time to Organize & Coach a Team
More and more careers are being created that deal with the environment. This is an excellent opportunity to give your students some additional background in the environment and exposure to environmental careers.
Envirothon is Different from other Extra-Curricular Activities
The Nebraska Envirothon competition gives your students the opportunity to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it to life. Students are given the chance to interact with resource professionals that use the knowledge they gained in high school and college every day in their careers. The Envirothon shows students the link between academics and the business world.
