ELECTRI International launched the Student Passport Competition at its July ELECTRI Council meeting with project presentations from the two finalist NECA Student Chapter Teams:

  • Kevin Clement from Penn State University presented the proposal for a water pumping station project in Roatán, Honduras.
  • Purdue University’s proposal for a health care facility for the elderly in Managua, Nicaragua, was presented by Juan Lacayo.

The ELECTRI Council selected the Penn State project in Honduras. The team will receive an award of up to $20,000 to execute the project.

In a show of industry support for young talent, several ELECTRI Council members decided on site to make individual contributions to support the Purdue University project. ELECTRI expresses its thanks to David Mackay (Edward G. Sawyer Company, Inc.) and Don Campbell (Northern California Chapter NECA) for taking the lead in raising the additional funds required to fund the Purdue initiative.
