Five team members from the Newton North Envirothon Team traveled to Pocatello, Idaho in July to represent Massachusetts in the 2018 NCF Envirothon.
They put together a video talking about their EnviroTrek through the year and at the competition. Congratulations to Laura Schmidt-Hong and Einat Gavish co-captains, Eve Martin, Gus Betts-O’Rourke, and Ethan Gahm for all their hard work and to the rest of the team and coach Anndy Dannenberg for their support during the year!
Are you recruiting new team members? Looking for fall activities that will pay off at the competition next spring? Hungry for new knowledge, skills, and connections? Want to strengthen your teamwork?
The Mass Envirothon September Challenge is a brand new way to help your rookie or experienced team to get a running start on the Envirothon year. The Challenge is totally optional and noncompetitive. It invites teams to explore this year’s Current Issue Abundant, Affordable, Healthy Food in their communities while the weather is still warm and the harvest is in full swing. Teams that post their findings have a chance to learn about GIS mapping and online surveying. If your team takes this opportunity for a head start, you may also find ways to make a real contribution toward solutions in your community!
Even if you don’t participate in the Challenge, your team can still get an early start by contributing to the 2019 Mass Envirothon EnviroTrek Story Map.
Participating teams will get special recognition this fall and at the May 2019 competition!
