Virginia’s Dominion Energy Envirothon

COVID-19 update Oct. 12th, 2020

During the VASWCD Educational Foundation board meeting, held Sept. 29th, 2020, it was decided that the 2020-2021 Virginia Dominion Energy Envirothon Program will occur virtually to ensure the safety of students, coaches, judges, volunteers and SWCD Staff.  Bonnie Mahl, the Virginia Dominion Energy Envirothon Coordinator, is working with Virginia Soil & Water Conservation District Staff to design the virtual Envirothon program.  It was decided that Areas would work together to put on a training and competition.
