The U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition 2018 will be governed and adjudicated by this manual, which is intended to establish fair contest rules and requirements. In the case of a discrepancy with other competition materials or communication, this document takes precedence. The organizers reserve the right to change contest criteria, rules, and measurable outcomes as needed.

In addition, teams are encouraged to bring to our attention rules that are unclear, misguided, or in need of improvement. The organizers will seriously consider suggestions that are feasible and within our constraints and are intended to improve the competition, its rules, measurable outcomes, fairness, or precision.
