Congratulations to the Solar District Cup Class of 2021-2022 on the success of the 2021-2022 Competition Event. With 28 competing teams from 31 collegiate institutions, there were many great projects presented. After the announcement of the top teams in each division, the first-place winners—Creighton University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Drexel University—faced off in the Project Pitch Championship, each presenting a condensed version of their winning proposal.

After viewing three terrific project pitches, a public audience of over 150 attendees voted to select their favorite team. In the end, Creighton University was voted as the Project Pitch Champion.  

Congratulations, again, to the three first-place teams on fantastic proposals! And thank you to all the students who competed in the Solar District Cup Class of 2021-2022. You impressed the judges, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) leadership, competition partners, and the organizers with your hard work and thoughtful pitches.
