June 16, 2014 – To mark the 6th Annual Global Wind Day (Sunday, June 15), the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) launched a redesigned Power of Wind contest: this year, there are four bursary prizes of $1000, each awarded for the best blogs, the most creative submissions and the best use of multimedia.
Students entering or in post-secondary education are eligible to submit multimedia or written entries on the theme of why wind energy is important to Canada’s future energy mix.
“Our Power of Wind Contest provides Canadian students with an effective platform to present their views and make their voice heard in support of wind energy,” said Robert Hornung, CanWEA president (photo).
Participants can submit their blog entries until September 15, 2014. The winners will be announced at CanWEA’s Annual Awards Banquet in Montreal, Que., October 29, 2014. Additional information can be found on CanWEA’s Friends of Wind website.
Global Wind Day occurs annually June 15. It is coordinated by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) through a network of partners, such as CanWEA.
