2014 Future City Competition Regional Finalists Advance to National Finals in Washington DC

 

Since September 2013, 40,000 middle school students from over 1000 schools in 37 national regions have been engaged in DiscoverE's 2013-14 Future City® Competition. Their challenge: Tomorrow’s Transit: Design A Way To Move People In And Around Your City.

In January, each region held qualifying competitions to select the team that will represent its area in the Future City Competition National Finals. Now, those finalists have been selected and the winners are preparing to travel to Washington DC for the National Finals, to be held at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, February 15-18, 2014, during Engineers Week.

Fierce competition over the four days results in one team taking home the grand prize of a trip to U.S. Space Camp and $7,500 for their school’s STEM program (provided by National Finals sponsor Bentley Systems). Click here for a full list of awards and prizes.
