The Mississippi Envirothon, a program of the Mississippi Association of Conservation Districts, is a hands-on natural resource competition designed to challenge students in grades 9 through 12 to explore the natural world around them. Competitors are tested in the categories of: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and current environmental issues.
​​
Through local soil and water conservation districts, volunteers and resource personnel from state and federal natural resource agencies and organizations work with educators, sharing environmental expertise to prepare the teams for this competition. Students receive hands-on assistance from the experts, who test and judge area competitions, and assist at the statewide competition.

The Mississippi Envirothon​ is funded through grants from the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality​.
