Stocks in this article: CAJ

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that a five-member student team from The MountAcademy in Esopus, N.Y. is the winner of the 2013 North American Envirothon. Sponsored by Canon U.S.A. and local conservation districts, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of Conservation Districts, the Envirothon is North America’s largest high school environmental education competition. This year’s competition was held at Montana State University from August 4-9, where 57 teams representing 47 U.S. states, nine Canadian provinces and one Canadian territory competed for a share of $175,000 in scholarships, host grants and Canon products.

“Congratulations to the teams that participated in this year’s North American Envirothon,” said Bunji Yano, senior director and general manager, Corporate Communications Division, Canon U.S.A. “The Envirothon is a great way for high school students to learn about sustainability, the environment and management of our natural resources. Canon’s corporate philosophy of Kyosei – all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future, corresponds with these values – education and environmental responsibility are important to us.”

The North American Envirothon tests teams on their knowledge of soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and a current environmental issue. Each team's knowledge is tested under the supervision of foresters, soil scientists, wildlife specialists and other natural resource professionals. Teamwork, problem-solving and presentation skills are evaluated as each team offers a panel of judges an oral presentation with recommendations for solving the specific challenge that is presented during the competition. The current environmental issue for this year's competition was sustainable rangeland management: achieving a balance between traditional agricultural uses with non-agricultural uses on Montana rangelands.
