Enter the Power of 2015 Wind Contest

Power Of Wind

 

To celebrate Global Wind Day, the international annual day for discovering the power of wind, and the growing contribution of wind energy in Canada, CanWEA has launched the fourth annual Power of Wind Contest.

As Canada marks a milestone year in surpassing 10,000 MW of installed wind energy capacity, students entering or in post-secondary education are invited to submit a multimedia or written entry capturing why harnessing wind power and promoting its continued growth is important to Canada’s energy future.

Accepted formats include a 300 word blog; an audio or video link or file, up to 1 minute long; or a visual representation of the concept you’d like to portray.

Use your imagination and get creative!
