With the kids heading back to school, it’s become that time of year again; the time for the 20th Annual Future City Competition!  

The Future City Competition is a national program sponsored by the engineering community to promote technological literacy and engineering to middle school students.  The program fosters an interest in math, science, and engineering through hands-on, real world applications.  The competition is open to all public, private and parochial schools.  The national finals of the Future City Competition are a featured event during Engineers Week, with students from across the country competing in Washington, D.C.

We are seeking your assistance with sponsorship of a Society Award in the Arizona Region Competition

As with previous years, we are asking that all society award sponsors commit to:

  • Gathering an organized team of 5-8 society judging members
  • Designing (or maintain from past years) a competition award that relates to the overall goals of the completion and/or the individual society
  • Participating in the training session
  • Visiting the Burton Barr Central Library for preliminary judging
  • Attending and actively participating in the Competition Day including: attending presentations, speaking with students and providing promotional materials on your society, and presenting the award at the afternoon ceremony
  • Arranging delivery and presentation of the award to the winning students in the months after the competition day


Key Dates:

Society Award Judge Team Registration: Fall 2017

Society Judge Training: TBD

Future City Models on Display, Library Downtown Phoenix: TBD

All-Day Competition: TBD

A Future City Professional Society Judge will spend about 20 hours in December and January reviewing student team deliverables using society specific scoring guidelines.  Society sponsored awards are presented at the region finals.

Cost and Donation opportunities

Society Sponsored Award Cost: $500

Looking for ways to further support the competition?  We have additional exciting opportunities for sponsorship; please let me know if you are interested.

One more item to note:  Have you ever wished there was a group that brought all the Engineering Societies together to share in technical knowledge, networking, outreach, and even politics?  Well, there is one, and your partricipation is vital to its success!  Be sure to “LIKE” The Arizona Council for Engineering and Science, ACESA, on Facebook and learn more about it!

We are hopeful that we have your support this year’s competition. Please contact me via email, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Let’s make this year the best Future Cities Competition yet!
