2020 Shell Eco-marathon Virtual Programme update:

The global impacts of COVID-19 have meant that all physical events in 2020 have been cancelled. However, while we can’t gather around a track, we’re delighted to share the latest on the alternative Shell Eco-marathon virtual programme.

The Shell Eco-marathon Americas Off-Track Awards showcase the wide range of skills and talents that have gone into each Shell Eco-marathon project and recognise the excellence and outstanding achievements made by the team off the track.

On Wednesday, May 6, 2020 @6pm EDT, Americas Off-Track winners were announced LIVE and exclusive on Instagram and Twitter.

Host Norman Koch, Global General Manager Shell Eco-marathon, was joined by an expert panel of judges and a very special guest to announce the winners: Shell-Pennzoil NASCAR Driver Joey Logano.

What a great year it has been! We received 65 submissions across seven categories from 34 teams in seven countries. That’s nearly twice the number as in previous years.

The competition was fierce, and our judges had a tough time deliberating over submissions. After building shortlists of the best teams, our panel used scorecards to arrive at a final decision.

And as in previous years, the winning teams in each category receive USD 3,000, and the recipient of the Road Safety Stipend was awarded USD 500.

Below, you’ll find a list of winners of the 2020 Shell Eco-marathon Americas Off-track Awards.
