Community Awards

Why Community Awards? Your team works hard to prepare for your Envirothon Current Issue presentation. You deserve recognition for this work! And if your Current Issue research results in a service or action project that benefits your community, Mass Envirothon wants to recognize this, as well.

The Mass Envirothon Community Awards provide important recognition for your team, plus visibility for your school and your community. A letter of congratulations is sent to your principal, with copies to your coach, your superintendent, your state legislators, your community partners, local media, and the Secretary of Energy & Environmental Affairs. This is a big deal!

These awards can be earned by any team that meets the requirements. They are optional and noncompetitive. Teams who work to qualify for the awards tell us that they have a better Envirothon experience overall.
