2nd annual Power of Wind Blog Contest for Global Wind Day


June 14, 2013 – To mark the 5th Annual Global Wind Day on June 15, the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) launched the second annual Power of Wind Blog Contest, with bursary prizes for students entering post-secondary education.

“We are pleased to announce the Power of Wind Blog Contest today because it gives Canadian students a chance to join the conversation and share their views on renewable energy,” said Robert Hornung, president of CanWEA.

CanWEA invites students from across Canada to submit a 300-word blog on the subject of building a clean energy future. Students are being asked to use their creativity and write about how they are or can become part of a renewable energy future.

The contest last year attracted hundreds of thoughtful and creative entries on the power of wind, says CanWEA. First prize is a $2000 bursary for post-secondary studies. The second and third prizes are bursaries worth $500 and $250, respectively. Participants will have the opportunity to submit their blog entries until September 15, 2013, and the winners will be announced during CanWEA’s annual conference and exhibition October 7-10 in Toronto. Additional information, contest rules, and terms and conditions can be found on the Friends of Wind website at www.friendsofwind.ca.
