Chinese team from a Shanxi Normal University-affiliated high school in Xi’an represented China at the 2016 North American Envirothon. This year, Canadian and U.S. students competing in the North American Envirothon faced a Chinese team for the first time. A team from a high school affiliated with Shanxi Normal University in Xi’an won its regional competition and served as China’s representative at the 2016 North America Envirothon. The Chinese team came to Canada to learn more about the Envirothon program, with hopes of growing the program in China. The team participated in the competition with the teams from Canada and U.S. The following are testimonials from three of the Chinese students.
