2019/2020 Washington Future City Competition Update
Reminder – It’s great to come to regionals, but teams can also just complete a few deliverables and do Future City indecently on their own time-line. By registering all the resources are available to you.
Here are the latest updates from Future City HQ and the Washington Region
The City Essay maximum word count is 1,500 words. Initial tabulation is done by the “word count” tool within the word processing software. The final word count does not include the title and reference list, but does include captions of graphics and illustrations. Words that appear within a graphic/illustration/table will be included in the word count. A maximum of four graphics/illustrations are allowed. A 10-point penalty will apply if word count exceeds 1,500.
The city model in its basic state must fit to be no larger than 25” (W) X 50” (L) X 20” (H). During the presentation, it is permissible to have extended parts, such as access doors, compartments, and hinged pullouts, as long as they are fully self-supported by the model, or- if removable – held by a presenter. Failure to comply with the city model dimensions will result in 15-point penalty.
