The 2017 NCF Envirothon is now in the history books. The event ran from July 24 through July 28 with 54 teams competing representing the United States, Canada, and 2 teams from the Republic of China. Mt. St. Mary’s University served as the host for the event.
After a week of intense competition, the team from Pennsylvania emerged as the winning team with New York and New Mexico holding down the next two positions respectively. Each received a cash award provided by Smithfield Foods. The home team from Maryland finished in 10th place. The participants toured Washington D.C. on Wednesday and were treated to a Maryland crab feast that evening at Sandy Point State Park. Tours for the coaches and chaperones also visited the Gettysburg and Antietam Battlefields as well as local farms and agri-businesses.
