The Central New York Regional Envirothon enjoys continued success year after year because of their major sponsor, Covanta Energy. Located in Jamesville, New York, Covanta Energy is an “Energy-from-Waste” facility that provides the sustainable waste disposal long term and renewable energy for Onondaga County including Syracuse. “As we approach 20 years’ commitment, we are very proud to continue sponsoring the Central New York Regional Envirothon. This outstanding environmental competition challenges the minds of our science students in the four-county region”, said Kathleen Carroll, Covanta Energy’s Business Manager. “The educational value for high school students who want to pursue critical fields of science and engineering is unsurpassed, and Covanta is happy to be part of it.”
Whether it's participating, coaching, sponsoring, or volunteering at the event, the Envirothon represents a great opportunity for everyone. Now held in most states and Canadian provinces, these programs reach more than 500,000 students every year.

The Envirothon began in Pennsylvania in the spring of 1979. Since then, it has spread to other states and countries. New York State held its first Envirothon in 1990. High school teachers across the country are recognizing the value of the Envirothon as a means of strengthening the environmental awareness of young men and women.
Beyond motivating students to learn more about the environment, the Envirothon emphasizes the development of practical skills such as research, teamwork and public speaking. The spirit of competition stimulates students' interests in environmental concerns and motivates them to further develop their skills and grow into environmentally-aware, action-oriented adults
Generous donations from Covanta Energy, as well as contributions from other private sources, fund the CNY Regional Envirothon. To become a sponsor please contact your county Soil and Water Conservation District.
