KidWind at WINDPOWER 2017

2017 National KidWind Challenge

KidWind, with support from title sponsor Pattern Energy and additional funding from GE, Vernier and AWEA, will host the 2017 National KidWind Challenge at the AWEA WINDPOWER 2017 Conference & Exhibition! We are super excited to bring this event to WINDPOWER!  

To get an idea of what will happen watch this video!

Back this year, the National KidWind Challenge returns to WINDPOWER!  The National Challenge provides a venue for top-scoring participants of local KidWind Challenge Events and the REcharge Labs Wind Turbine Online Challenge winners to compete.  More than 40 teams of middle and high school students will convene in Anaheim.  The competition involves wind tunnel testing, judging by engineering staff, instant competitions, and student presentations.  Top performers win cash and prizes but the real reward for the students and coaches is the connections they make with other students and the wind industry.

The competition will be held Wednesday, May 24 and Thursday, May 25 in the 3rd floor ballroom of the Anaheim Convention Center.

Volunteers Needed:  We are looking for volunteers at the National KidWind Challenge.  Join the KidWind team as we welcome 40-50 middle and high school teams from all over the US as then compete to be the National KidWind Champion.

Volunteer shifts can be as short at 2 hours and we love people with all kinds of backgrounds. All volunteers get a FREE KidWind Challenge T-shirt and the happiness of knowing that have made some impact on kids understanding of wind power.

Thanks for all you do and look forward to meeting you at WINDPOWER 2017.  Sign Up HERE>
