Sponsorships Available for Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge

Programs like the Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge are made possible in part by the generous support of industry volunteers as well as NFPA Education and Technology Foundation and Pascal Society donors. Support these efforts by making a donation.


The Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge for 2021 is underway, and companies are already starting to claim their spots as judges, mentors, and sponsors. The Technology Sponsorship* is still available and is an immediate need that gains year-long recognition for your company from September 2020 to April 2021.

  • What it is: Sponsor a website exclusively for the participants of the Vehicle Challenge and Fluid Power Clubs that serves as the key resource for students from 15-20 universities as well as industry representatives. It provides easy access to program information and is the place where students submit competition deliverables and judges submit their scores when they evaluate the teams.
  • What you get: Your company logo will be prominently placed on the website for the duration of the program year, acknowledging your support.

We are actively expanding this program to include more students from more universities, which will provide even more opportunities to increase your company’s visibility to the talent pool emerging from universities across the country. Contributing sponsors provide teams with the needed technology to efficiently participate in the competition all year long or help to create a space during the final competition event for these bright students to network with fluid power representatives and be hired into our industry. Make sure your company is visible to these promising engineers!
