Win Big with Wind
June 29, 2012
As renewable energy grows, so does the excitement surrounding it. If you’re looking for a way to channel this passion, look no further than Friends of Wind.
Friends of Wind is a site that promotes advocacy for the wind industry. It provides you will all the tools you need to support wind energy. From contacting your provincial representative, to guides on writing letters to the editor, Friends of Wind has you covered.
Friends of Wind isn’t letting your advocacy go unrewarded either. With their Power of Wind blog contest they are providing up to a $2,000 bursary for the best 300 words on wind. The contest runs until September 15th, and is open to Canadian post-secondary students, either prospective or current.
If $2,000 for just 300 words isn’t tempting enough, the prizes also include an invitation to deliver your essay in person at CanWEA’s Annual Awards Banquet, and a chance to climb the turbine at Exhibition place.
For a taste of what that experience would be like, check out this video from Puget Sound Energy. Acrophobics beware.
