The Hydrogen Education Foundation will hold its fifth annual Hydrogen Student Design Contest, a multi-disciplinary competition that tasks aspiring engineers, marketers, and entrepreneurs to imagine applications for the energy source that will benefit the community at large.
The international competition was created to showcase the talents of student designers and planners, and to yield new ideas for the practical applications of the renewable resource.
Competitors will have to plan and design the basic elements of a hydrogen community in Southern California addressing such issues as energy production, sustainability and overall community safety.
One aspect of the contest will see students imagining a repeatable design for local hydrogen fueling stations to accommodate new hydrogen cars and busses.
In addition to an undisclosed cash prize, the team that walks away with the grand prize will be invited to present their ideas before a panel pf exerts as a keynote session of the NHA Hydrogen Conference and Expo in Long Beach.
Previous competitions have centered on sustainable buildings and specific energy production methods.
