Competition Day Information

2021-2022 Changes

  • The competition will run similarly to the 2020-2021 Competition.
  • Everything will be virtual this year. All deliverables will be posted to the Future City Dashboard or a shared location and scoring will be completed on the Dashboard. 
  • There is no SimCity deliverable this year. 
  • Instead of presenting and displaying a model on Competition Day, teams will provide a recorded presentation and a slideshow on their model. The model and presentation will be judged separately and each judge will complete their own scoring sheet through the Dashboard. 
  • A new segment of the competition will be Live Q & A. This will consist of playing a team's recorded presentation followed by a 10 minute live Q&A session between judges and 3 students. This Live Q&A session will be scored separately from the model and presentation, immediately following the Q&A; each judge will submit their own scoring sheet through the Dashboard. 
  • After the preliminary round of judging is completed, the top three teams will proceed to finals judging. Finals judging will take place between the Live Q&A and Awards ceremony. Finals judges will score the teams' recorded presentation and participate in a round of Live Q&A. 
  • The Awards Ceremony will be held on January 22nd where 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and special awards will be announced. 
  • Special awards will be determined based on recorded presentations, model slideshows, and recorded Q&A sessions. Teams will be divided into award categories as we have in the past.
