After a week of heavy snow, including near whitout conditions on the commute to the competition, we persevered and again had a WONDERFUL New England Regional Future City Competition. Photos from the day can be found by FOLLOWING THIS LINK.
Twenty one teams braved the storm, and most that were unable to make it have contacted us to judge them at their school (although they know this does not make them eligible for the Nationals). In all, there was over 150 students present and almost an equal number of volunteers.
The three final teams were
101010 (West Springfield)
Labodiem (Birchland Park, East Longmeadow MA)
Frisch Vom Dach (Farmington Valley American Muslim Center, Farmington CT)
All did amazing, and by just a 2 point spread over Labodiem, Frisch Vom Dach came out on top. Team members are Daniyal Athar, Ehsen Ahmed and Hashim Ali. Educator is Faiza Athar, and the mentor is Urooj Ahmad.
