KidWind with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office called upon Kindergarten–8th grade students from around the nation to create artwork about the theme Beautiful Wind Energy. 18 winners, two from each grade have been chosen and will receive $200, and show their work at the nation’s annual CLEANPOWER 2024 conference in Minneapolis May 5–8, 2024 alongside the World KidWind Challenge. Winning artwork may also be curated at the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington D.C., where thousands of energy officials pass by daily.

The selection panel consisted of staff from KidWind, U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Due to the number of submissions and how impressed our judges were with the artwork, the judges decided to include a number of honorable mentions. While honorable mentions will not have their artwork publicly displayed, they will each receive $100, and are featured on this page.
