In-Kind Sponsorship

The Next Generation Wood Stove Design Challenge is seeking corporate in-kind sponsors to donate a few key items that are needed at the competition. The Challenge is a high-profile renewable energy competition that will culminate in a Wood Stove Decathlon to be held on the National Mall in Washington, DC in November 2013. These needed items include, but are not limited to: stove accessories, trained stove installers, and a Wi-Fi system to use on the National Mall.

Sponsoring the Challenge is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your company's or organization's commitment to cleaner burning and higher efficiency wood stove technology. Click here to download a PowerPoint with more information on the Challenge. Contact Trevor Gionet at or (301) 841-7755 to request more information on sponsorship opportunities.
