New York - Capital Region

Regional Coordinator: Diane Bertok & Greg Skiba

Welcome to Capital Region Future City Competition!

The competition comprises of teams of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who develop a futuristic city based on the theme of the year. The 2021-2022 theme is A Waste-Free Future. Teams will design a waste-free city using the principles of a circular economy. These teams write an essay, create a model to scale, provide a project plan, and present to judges on their futuristic city at this event.

The amazing impact this event has on our local community, schools, and students is incomprehensible. This competition goes beyond just a one-day competition by teaching students how to apply math and science to real world problems.
