October 30, 2014 – Several young Canadian adults were honoured as winners in the Canadian Wind Energy Association’s (CanWEA) 3rd annual Power of Wind contest. This year (2014), students were invited to submit multimedia and written entries on why they believe wind energy is important to Canada’s energy future.

“The submissions revealed a high awareness among students of wind energy’s role in powering new economic and environmental opportunities, and the ways that Canada can demonstrate global leadership in the development of renewable energy,” said CanWEA president, Robert Hornung, of the over 200 multimedia entries.
