The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) annual event for landscape and horticulture students, the National Collegiate Landscape Competition (NCLC), is set to take place from March 13-16 at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah.

The event brings together more than 600 students from approximately 50 colleges and universities, educators and industry professionals for competitive events, educational workshops and career-building opportunities. The NCLC showcases the dedication and skill of students pursuing careers in landscape and horticulture professions. This competition bridges academia and the workforce, providing a platform for students to demonstrate their abilities and for industry professionals to identify and recruit top talent.

“We are thrilled to bring the National Collegiate Landscape Competition to Brigham Young University,” said Britt Wood, CEO of the NALP. “This event not only celebrates the incredible talent of the next generation of landscape professionals but also fosters a collaborative and educational environment for students to learn from industry experts and connect with potential employers.”

This year’s host and longtime event partner, BYU, provides a picturesque backdrop for the competition, offering participants a unique setting to demonstrate their expertise in 30 real-world, competitive events like exterior landscape design, plant identification, robotics and technology in landscape design and maintenance, irrigation troubleshooting and more.

The event is made possible through the support of sponsors like Stihl, which has been the lead sponsor of the National Collegiate Landscape Competition for more than 20 years. “Stihl is proud to help empower the next generation of landscape professionals through our support,” said Roger Phelps, corporate communications manager for Stihl “Students here will be able to show their talent, learn of career opportunities and forge relationships that will last long after the event ends.”

The National Collegiate Landscape Competition is powered by Stihl with additional support from NALP’s additional Elite Partners: Aspire, Caterpillar and Stanley Black and Decker.
