2013 Power of Wind Blog Contest – I am change!

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013


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 second annual Power of Wind Blog Contest.

Students entering or in post-secondary education are invited to submit a 300 word blog on the subject of building a clean energy future. We want to hear from you on how you would contribute to, and become a part of, a renewable energy future. Tell us how you can make a difference by incorporating the phrase “I am change!” or “I make a difference!”

Use your imagination and be creative!

The contest will run from June 15, 2013 (Global Wind Day) to September 15, 2013. The winner will be announced in Toronto at CanWEA’s Annual Conference on October 7-10, 2013.

The winners of the Power of Wind Blog Contest will win the following:

  • 1st prize: $2,000 bursary
  • 2nd prize: $500 bursary
  • 3rd prize: $250 bursary

The contest is open until September 15, 2013. Entries will be accepted as of June 15. This contest is open to participants from Canada. There is no entry fee, and each participant can submit only one entry to this contest. CanWEA employees and CanWEA member organizations are not eligible to take part in the contest, nor are their relatives or members of their families. CanWEA also reserves the right to use any blog submissions on its website or for any other marketing materials. The decision of the judges is final. Only the winners will be contacted after submissions have been reviewed.

To be eligible for the bursary, all applicants must (and will be required to provide proof of):

  • Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status.
  • For graduating high school or CEGEP students, proof of enrolment at a recognized Canadian publicly funded post-secondary school for the Fall 2013 academic term.
  • For full-time university or college students, proof of enrolment at a recognized publicly funded Canadian post-secondary school for the 2012/2013 and Fall 2013 academic terms.

Your 300 word blog can be submitted by email to info@friendsofwind.ca by no later than September 15, 2013.

Good luck!
