Future City students increase faith in our nation's future

As IEEE-USA’s PR Manager, Chris McManes takes pride in the role IEEE-USA had in the early formation of the Future City Competition, and in its continued role as one of Future City’s key supporters.  IEEE-USA was the chairing society for National Engineers Week in 1992-1993 when they launched.

The society furthered its involvement by funding a study to view the career path of Future City alumni along with a demographic assessment of the program’s participants. The study found that most students felt that participation helped them think creatively and improved their communication skills. More than half of the students said they planned to study science, technology, engineering or mathematics in high school and college.

Chris’ has helped serve as a host of the National Finals in Washington DC and as a volunteer judge for many years. Chris observes how Future City teaches students that good communicators go far in their careers and have a great value for employers. "Every year the students who qualify for the Future City Finals increase my faith in our nation's future. They are so bright, so outgoing and so poised for their age. I think they're going to achieve some great things not only for themselves and their families, but for society as a whole.”
