STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A team from Penn State University has won a national contest for designing and building the best small wind turbine.

The U.S. Department of Energy says in a Friday statement that more than 150 students from 10 universities took part in the three-day Collegiate Wind Competition, which was held in Las Vegas this week.

The Penn State team was comprised of engineering and business students, and was also honored for best business pitch during the event.
