We are highlighting the academic excellence that cadets displayed at this year's Projects Day, supported via donations to the Margin of Excellence. Each year, Projects Day at West Point showcases hundreds of cadet capstone projects across all academic departments, and 2020 was no different--except that it went virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Projects Day 2020 had a total of 318 projects and more than 200 live project presentations online via the USMA conferencing platform. Almost 1,500 people tuned in to watch West Point's annual "academic Super Bowl."
“The Winant Scholars 2019 team is extremely grateful for the donations from the WPAOG that allowed our trips and research to become a reality.' - CDT Elizavetta (Liz) Fursova '21
Donors that support West Point and the Long Gray Line helped make this happen and we are truly grateful.
Congratulations to all the Projects Day winners from WPAOG!
