Volunteers

Texas Envirothon would not be able to put on this yearly environmental competition without the help of volunteers like you – join the fun!

The competition for 2022 will take place on Friday, April 8, and Tuesday, April 12, which roughly breaks down as follows:

  • On Friday, April 8, the in-person competition portion of the day (1 p.m. – 5 p.m.) requires Test Runners, Station Monitors, Team Guides, and Photographers;
  • On Tuesday, April 12, the online oral presentation portion (1 – 5 p.m.) requires Judges.

Volunteering at the Texas Envirothon has many benefits:

  • All volunteers will receive a Texas Envirothon t-shirt.
  • You'll have opportunities to network with educators and environmental professionals from across Texas.
  • You'll meet environmentally conscious students from across Texas.
  • You'll also reconnect with your own avidity to make a difference for both young people and the Texas landscape.

The 2022 competition will be held in Houston. The exact location is top secret, so we will be emailing that information closer to the event date. Volunteers should have their own transportation.
