"We are thrilled to bring the National Collegiate Landscape Competition to Brigham Young University,” said Britt Wood, CEO of 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.”

The annual 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. 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.

Participants will have the opportunity 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 career fair is also integral to the event, allowing students to explore career opportunities, internships, and networking prospects within the landscape industry.

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.

The event also recognizes significant support from NALP’s additional Elite Partners: Aspire, Caterpillar, and Stanley Black and Decker.
