Five committees cooperate to promote the competition, develop the evaluation case, administer team applications, set up the judging process and obtain prizes for the winning teams.

A coordinating committee, comprised of a chair and the leads from the five committees, ensures a smooth roll-out of the competition.

An executive committee provides oversight, advice and quality control.


Sixteen volunteers from seven countries (Cameroon, Canada, France, Ghana, Kenya, Mexico, and Nepal) are working on the 2021 competition.

A WECC Advisory Board offers external advice and support for the Competition.

All organizers, judges and Advisory Board members are volunteers.

The organizers and judges for past competitions are listed in the WECC archive.
