The 2021 Collegiate Wind Competition will be held as a virtual event in June 2021. Thirteen competing teams and two learn-along teams will present their work to a remote panel of judges via webinar.
The 2021 competition challenges teams to research, design, and build a turbine for deployment in highly uncertain times with a great degree of unknown risks and delays. The 2021 competition also features a new Connection Creation Contest, in which teams conduct outreach within the wind industry, their local communities, and local media outlets.
Details on the 2021 competition are available in the CWC 2021 Rules and Requirements.
2021 Collegiate Wind Competition Teams
Learn-along teams are a new feature of the 2021 competition.
Learn-along teams may submit the same deliverables and receive feedback on submitted projects from competition judges. These teams are not eligible for awards, but the learn-along feature allows students to participate in the competition experience and establish a deeper understanding of the wind industry and the competition.
