As a part of speech, the infinitive, "to win," is a verb.

However, infinitives function as other parts of a sentence. In this sentence, "to win" functions as the direct object of the verb "is projected." Therefore, "to win" is a noun in this sentence.

To sum up:
TO WIN -- part of speech = verb
TO WIN -- sentence part = direct object/noun



Thank you, Ms. Sue!
