Oral Presentation

Oral Presentation Topic & Resources

The 2023 Program Current Issue Topic is “Adapting to Climate Change”

“The ability to communicate clearly and effectively is a crucial skill when addressing environmental issues, particularly in situations where collaborative efforts are required to develop practical solutions and affect change. The Envirothon strives to promote the development of oral communication skills in each student participant, which is why the oral presentation is emphasized as a major component of the total competition score at the NCF-Envirothon annual international competition.”
