Hola Ellen

We don't need the subjunctive here because in this case, the subject is the same in both clauses:

(Nosotros) Esperemos

(Nosotros) poder ganar este concurso

You'd need the subjunctive if you had two different subjects (for that, you also need "que":

Esperemos que Juan pueda ganar el concurso.

We hope that Juan can win the contest.

I hope this clarified it. 

Here is a lesson on esperar que + subjunctive

Saludos
