Shell Eco-marathon team celebrate

Breaking News: The winners of the 2021 Americas Off-Track Awards have been announced. Watch the awards show to find out which teams won.

The Off-Track Awards showcase the range of skills that go into each Shell Eco-marathon project and recognise the outstanding achievements of the teams off the track.

The annual awards give students the opportunity to compete across several categories, including safety, communications, technical innovation, and vehicle design for Urban Concept and Prototype.

In 2020, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation of the live events, we were unable to have physical award ceremonies, but we still wanted to find a way to still honour the students. So, with the support of our partners, special guests and an expert panel of judges, we announced the 2020 Off-Track Awards winners for the first time in virtual ceremonies, live on Instagram and Twitter.

Visit the Off-Track Awards pages per region below to watch the awards shows and see the full list of winners plus those teams deserving of honourable mentions. Then, read on to find out more about the teams’ inspirational stories and the incredible resourcefulness, creativity and ingenuity applied to their winning entries.
